we walked over to the village and stopped at the post office – and to the hotel Straits” to see about horses – and then rowed back against the wind in 20 minutes. A lovely clear sunset tonight and a lovely young moon, which Trudy & I watched from the piazza. July 15. Sat. A perfectly calm day and everyone was for the lake this morning. Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds and Miss Dike (quite separately!) put up large amounts of lunch and started off loaded, the former to fish and the latter to “drift” and “celebrate” (!) something. We walked down to the boat house with her and incidentally saw off the three girls from the cottage and the Estwick family. There were no boats left, so I read “Story of the Gadsbys” aloud while Trudy prepared a pillow for stuffing – on the shore. Two small boys went in bathing, meanwhile, when Will Estwick came in we walked up the patch with him and then stuffed pillows, in the hammock house – and (after dinner) I lay in the hammock and watched Herbert

and Will
play tennis
