Nice day. Mary and I carried water from lake for hair. Mom washed our hair outside. Mr. Dawkes came over and caught me clad in bra and shorts. Mary washed hair that way, too. Then we sat in sun and dried. [In margin she wrote “slick the front,” in quotes.] Mary sat with her bra on and back to sun. Got rather bad sunburn. Curled hair. In afternoon we borrowed Peruk’s[?] canoe and went out in channel. Such a mess. Yelled to Mary till she got mad. Dropped one cushion in water coming back. Got home one and a half hours late for dinner. Had dinner. Beautiful sunshine. At night Mary and I went to store for ice cream. Brought Mom one. Played few games, but to bed early.
