Friday 31th December 1915

It was a hot day. I got up early in the morning and went down to the wharf to meet the Steamer from Auckland, Alma Wallace and Leila Entwistle came up to stay with us. Mr Duncan Matheson came up in the morning & staid for lunch. George & Vie went over to Ti Point. Willie & Dave were not thrashing to day as Dave was not well.

Willie fixed up the Separator in the store and used it for the first time this morning.
