Friday 10th May 1918

It was a fine day.  I sowed a row of Sweet Peas near the front gate.  Jane came in the morning and staid for dinner, she came to be present at the send off for Eddie Wyatt this evening.

Willie took a load of mixed goods down to the wharf in the afternoon, I went down to the beach & carried some sand across to the wharf and Willie hauled it up.  There was a social in the Hall in the evening to farewell Lieutenaut Wyatt  (Eddie) who is home on his last leave.  There was a good crowd turned out, several of his friends subscribed and purchased a wristlett watch and I was asked to make the presentation, the ladies provided a splendid supper. Jane staid at A. Dunnings the night.
