Sun. – Clear – Warm – Paul & I went up to Boulevard pool again today.  I didn’t know whether to go or not because I look so terrible in a suit, but finally we went & I’m glad we did because we had a swell time.  The water was swelegant!  On the way home we saw an accident.  A couple of people were cut.  That’s all I think.  Mother was real sore because it was almost 10:30 when we got home.  Oh well!

Fri. – Len & the paper boy (Puffy) came down early this morning & got my boat out for me.  They didn’t know we were up & were going fishing so I didn’t go with them.  When they came in we all 3 walked to A & P & Len came back with me & we went in swimming & also took the boat & got the piece of slip up that was gone.  Boy that was a job rowing it.  Len is an awfully sweet kid.  I like him lots.  I was lonely tonight with nobody but Mom Mom & Charles.

Thurs. – Clear at last.  Went to matinee & saw Edmund Lowe in “I Love That Man”  It was pretty good.  Afterwards walked up to Tacony with May.  She was real good fun & we had a good time.  Tonight we came to Croydon because May Udell phoned & told us the tides were going to do all kinds of damage, but there’s nothing wrong except part of slip & my boat are gone & are lodged in the marshes down the road.  Mom Mom & I stayed up.
