Friday 20th October 1916

It was a fine day.

After breakfast Henry & I rode over Jimmy Hayes’ hill to Ahomatariki to be present at the marriage of my son Jack to Miss Lily Kirwell his housekeeper. Revd Digby Wilson performed the ceremony. I gave the bride away, Henry was best man and Miss Kirwells sister was bridesmaid. After partaking of breakfast Henry & I started for Tangihanga, having left the buggy at Jack’s place last night. Henry drove home, I rode home and lost my way in Hayes’ paddocks and did not get home much before Henry. It came on a misty rain.
