It was thundering, lightening & raining last night. It was very fine this morning. After breakfast I went down to the village to see Revd Macdonald. I gave him a letter for Mr Goertz containing a £5 note as our contribution to the Church fund for the half year ending 30th September 1917. Willie was pruning trees, Dave was here for dinner and afterward he and Willie cleared a track on the farm flat where they are going to burn charcoal. Late in the afternoon it came on to rain, it poured with thunder and lightening.
