Thursday 1st March 1917

It was a fine day. The married couple (Corbetts) left this morning, Mr Bristow took them down on horses and their luggage on pack horse. Henry rode down to Te Araroa to bring the draft horses that Carpenter left there, the waggon had to be left there until the roads are put straight. Coming back he called in at Halliwells and the horses gave him the slip.

I put the wool out to dry in the morning but after lunch it came over so cloudy that I took it in again.
