The wind was so stiff we didn't dare put up sail there so had to row some way to get a lee - Ham, Kate & I pulled & pushed and Chat steered. Finally we got into the channel, and tacked back and forth, first on one ear and there on the other - only one adventure here - not coming around where we tried. We saw the Moshers on Duazyupleze. The wind had freshened and we flew - even down Bonaparte Bay - our usual hoodoo - and Chat steered the "Bet" smash into the "Stephanie", tho' the sail was down, no serious damage, however. The family were glad to see us, and fed us, as usual, at one o'clock. After dinner I got washed and dressed and packed - willed my sneakers to Kate. Chat has at last decided not to go till next boat, as the Postmaster says she may stay, so I have to go back alone after all. I sat on the piazza and talked and embroidered the rest of the afternoon. It rained and the wind came up and it was generally disagreeable, but just before we started for the Pointe it stopped raining. Hamilton and my trunk and I went in the steel boat, which rides the waves beautifully, and Kate rowed Helen in the little one. I stopped at McIntosh's house and said goodbye to the people. Mrs. Baker goes tonight, too.
