Went up to see dragons today. Walked about three miles over “African Veldt” territory and up dry river beds. Blind already three-quarters constructed. Tied meat to nearby stakes, but only one small one nibbled. Saw a couple more and heard one in woods chasing bird. Charley and I left early, disgusted, and met up with Loring, Nora, Oakes, and Bunny who had gone on a little ahead. Dragons very disappointing.

Took swim before chow and slept two hours this afternoon. Oakes gave me message received last night stating that Mother is meeting me in Singapore October 2 as per schedule. It was dated August 2, and so she must have just left.
