224th day – 142 days follow
Mr Whipple and Mrs, H left for Marhta’s Vineyard this morning.
Thel said Margery Hathaway is going to be moved to New Jersey.
Thel is taking May up to Boston to see Toot.
Saw my first black snake, it was about 6 ft long and went into the pool garden.
Toot seems to be improving slowly and thinks he will be where he is till some time in September.
We had a big forest fire this afternoon up in back of Naris “Ed Manter” bog and what a day to fight it with the temperature 200 in the shade. The fire chief and several others were knocked out by the heat.
