[[underlined]] Camp Tewauua [[/underlined]]

A 1/2 mile through the woods from the farm house brought us to the Madeira cottage with its 3 tents & its piazza looking out on the lake & up on [[Kearsargs?]]. & then to the main Cabin & its group of sixteen tents scattered among the trees. 
The piazza is the dining room & one one of the tables ^ [[insertion]] paddles & [[/insertion]] canoe backs hang - & sometimes fall on the heads of the diners! Paddles canoe backs & cushions are kept at the Cabin, & the canoes turned upside down on the wharf, while the two row boats are tied in the water. 
The dining-room is protected from storms & wind & the sunset glare by letting down canvas curtains, & during supper it is hard to wait for the full view of the sunset - we have to look through the chinks.
  The bell ^ [[insertion]] for meals [[/insertion]] is a horn blown by the colored boy & the table bell a cowbell against the piazza wall.
