Monday July 15th.  Very hot day.  Arranged to play tennis at 4.30 p.m. but heavy rain shower stopped tennis for day at 2.30 p.m.  Marked out new 3 holes on golf course with Vick & Farmer & put up a bunker guarding No 1 green.  With a load of sand & rolling course ought to improve.

Friday July 12th.  Very hot day, sat out all morning & afternoon.  Played golf with Farmer after tea & beat him 4 & 2.  Have planned 3 more holes & must get sanction from Comdt to make them.  This will give a 9 hole course & I think will improve it especially when grass is cut & course generally smartened up.  Walked in Park after dinner with Sipi.
