Friday 28th July 1916

It was a fine day. After breakfast I had a look round the township, it was much improved since I was here about 13 years ago.

Jack brought a couple of horses down last night and Henry had a buggy which had been repaired at the blacksmiths so we gathered all our luggage and we drove to Tangihanga, Henry’s new place where we arrived at 4pm. Jack rode on his horse with us leading the dogs. Mr & Mrs Connoley are the married couple keeping house for Henry, John Addison was also working here, but Russell was at Jack’s place.
