Polly met Eve Farson at Colchester in the morning.
At 1.30 the Colchester Garrison Beagles arrived for a meet at out house. Soon after the hounds were taken to Daking's land at the back of our garden and ran many hares - too many - and very soon got mixed up in Corper? Wood - no kill during the afternoon - too many hares. We gave tea to all (50 had tea) here and we had 12 motor cars in the grounds and several in the road. Altogether quite successful.
