Journal Entry

August 29, 1896 ~ Saturday

Aug 29th we went out on the pier, got a fish
pole and line, caught a small stinger fish.
The location of this Hotel is excellent, and as a winter
resort has few equals in the land. The summers are
mild the weather cool and bracing, but the heat now
was greater than had been felt, it was said by old
residents, for 25 years. Spent most of the day reading
the morning papers.
