8th day- 357 days follow
Fred Moon was up on the hill this A.M. We put a new halyard on the flag pole and painted it.
Fair and mild, swell winter day
Roger Maroon came up and put a new ice box motor in the cellar.
About the middle of the afternoon I rode my wheel up to Jordans old golf links and hunted for 1 ½ hours found one perfect dark triangular felsite arrow point in the Withies garden, and tracked two of the largest raccoons I ever saw the foot prints of, they came from Forge pond and went into the old John Hadaway swamp.
The Carl Rounds’s came in here at 3 A.M. and had breakfast and started for Washington and Florida at 3:40 A.M.
Stopped in to see Walder on my way home and we had a talk about the Pilgrim project.
Thel is going out to P. Sisters tonight.
Howlands Pond is all clear of ice, so is the harbor.
