Orderly dog today, took the early exercise. Bathed at midday. Three porpoises came along quite close to us when we were in the water. Same old routine during the rest of the day.

This evening Elliott, Franklyn, and Bradley went fishing and had a good haul of bass. Elliott had four; Franklyn and Bradley one each. The two biggest weighed about a couple of pounds apiece. Great rejoicings in the mess tonight at the prospect of fresh fish for breakfast tomorrow morning.
