Diary

Oct. 3
(Saturday) Dan, Bill and I sailed to the Humber in the Bachelor. We anchored at the mouth and rowed the pup up thru the fleet. Also went thru the Ramses II, large 50 footer that is hauled up at Hicks for the winter. She belongs to Architect Simpson and is sure a dandy boat. She has a 4 cylinder Buffalo Engine and eats up 5 gal an hour. She is capable of 10 miles per hour. We shot 2 games of pool at Devins, Dan getting stuck for 1 and Bill for the other. We then had supper at Newtons Hotel: Fish, French Fried Potatoes, Tea, fruit Cake, Apple Pie and Ice Cream. Price 50 cents.
