Friday 27th October 1916

It was very fine in the morning but there was a misty rain in the afternoon. Henry left here early this morning to go over to Ahomatariki to help Jack with the docking. Mr Jackson of Te Araroa called this morning for the census papers, I made him a cup of tea, in the course of conversation I found out that he came from Burbage near Hinckley Leicestershire, so we had a good talk of my old county. Harry got a fresh horse in, he was digging in the garden.

I took it a bit easy to day so my side was a good deal better.
