It was a very fine day. Dave carted their charcoal down to the wharf. In the morning I went down to the beach and sieved a lot of sand and carried 3 bags of it across to the wharf for Dave to cart up for me. The remainder of the day I was digging the top side of the house.

Willie hauled the charcoal out on to the road. Willie Dunning came for the sulky in the evening, as he is playing in a cricket match at Warkworth tomorrow against Kaipara Flats.
It was a showery day. The “Kawau” came round from Big Omaha this morning, Willie went down for the bread and the meat. It was too wet to dig so I made some kerbing and got some manure for the garden. Mrs James Torkington left for Ti Point.

It rained nearly all morning and the wind was blowing strong from SE, it was finer in the afternoon .
