E8. and Jane Andrews nearly fell overboard. She was leaning out to pick water lilies and if Mr. Andrews hadn’t caught her by her sash just in the nick of time she’d have fallen in and prob’ly been drowned. I wish it had been me. It would be such a romantic experience to have been nearly drowned. It would be such a thrilling tale to tell.

F8 I have to laugh when I think of Anne’s ‘confession’ although I suppose I shouldn’t for it really was a falsehood. But it doesn’t seem as bad as the other would have been somehow, and anyhow I’m responsible for it.
