"roadside whist" some of the way - 7 legs count 5, 4 legs = 10, a cat = 25, in a door = 50 and in a window = game. The game is 250 and people as wagons & horses hitched up don't count. We left the carriage just beyond an old cider mill, up the clove a little way - and carried the various packages down a little path to the most beautiful sort of a "fawn's leap" waterfall we could walk across above, but the pool below was deep and darksome. We all turned in and gathered wood and Nan soon had a fire going and Aliceput the kettle of coffee on - and so on. Herb appeared with Barbara and a watermelon - which we put to soak in the icy cold water - along with the milk, cream and butter - Barbara and her mother and Gurdon explored about and Barbara waded, to her intense delight, and finally the coffee boiled and we all sat about and had a most splendiferous lunch, coffee, with cream - in the cups - tongue sandwiches, onion sandwiches, jelly sandwiches, jelly alone, sardines, pickles, cake, &c. &c. also corn - but only partly roasted - and water- melon, which everyone but Nan ate
