May WEDNESDAY 8 1895

Went out to Dover this afternoon in order to go on A.W.Smith's fishing excursion over to the cotages. The Alderson got us there at about four o'clock this evening and we started fishing at once. I only caught one fish this evening however. Bro. Cookman and Bradford Bowlby with his boy Allie were my fellow boat men. The latter two had a good catch this evening Weather very fine.

May THURSDAY 9 1895

Slept with Albert Gilbert in the club house at the cottages last night. Got up at about three o'clock this morning and went to fishing. Astonishing to relate the fish seemed to bite as well as in the day time. Succeeded in catching about forty fish before the Alderson came for us. Were determined by the steamer geting on a sand-bar something like three or four hours. Got in to the Port at about six o'clock however.
