It was a fine day.  The wind has gone down.  The “Kawau” came in early this morning from Big Omaha.  Grace went down to get the bread and beef.

George Davey came over from Ti Point in the morning, he and Gertie came by the steamer yesterday.  Grace & I took the sulky down to the wharf in the afternoon & brought up Mrs Simpsons & Gertie’s luggage.

In the evening I went down to get the mail and attended a meeting of the Hall Committee business, to go on with fencing the horse pen and the fence round the hall.

The wind was still blowing from the E, but it has moderated a good deal.  Willie & Fave were watching the kiln burning.  I was fixing kerbing round the diamond bed  in the morning. In the afternoon I took the box of eggs down to the wharf in the sulky.  The steamer made a round trip , going into Big Omaha first, she got stuck going up to the top wharf so she did not get here, however we got the mail as John Greenwood brought the mail from Ti Point.

Wind still easterly.  I fixed some kerbing, transplanted a pink Begonia from farm orchard also a bleeding heart.

Cut a lot of tea tree on the hill, carried some of it down & sawed it up into blocks for kerbing.

The wind was blowing strong from the E. The steamer should have come in the evening, but on account of the rough sea she did not come.

Willie & Dave were building the kiln. I was working in the flower garden.
