2nd August 1942

Heavy rain this morning.  Mrs. Parrington and the Canadian rode over to Frank Girling’s to see the crops, she on Robin and he bareback on Roger.  He rode very well indeed, and has been used to horses all his life.  He tells me that Canadian farming is by no means mechanised, and that it is unusual to have tractors on a 600 acre holding.  He comes from near Saskatoon.
