It was a fine day. In the afternoon I walked to the Claim. Staid the night at Jim’s, Jane and the children only returned from Auckland yesterday morning, having been away a fortnight. King George’s birthday.
The Kawau left Auckland last night at midnight, went into Big Omaha first and did not arrive here much before noon, she left again to day making a round trip. I went down & got the mail.
Willie went to the quarry in the morning, but it looked threatening for rain so he came home again and was sorting out old peach trees in the orchard.
The weather cleared up and we had no rain, I got firewood and did odd jobs.
