Friday 5th October 1917

It was a fine day but the wind has changed to the NE, I left Wallaces’ at about 10.30am and went over to Auckland, called on Mr Grindrod at his office, did some shopping and then embarked on the Kawau on the return trip to Leigh at 2pm. We arrived at 7.30 after a pretty rough trip, Willie was down to meet me and went straight home. Mrs Knowles was spending the evening there.  There was a Patriotic dance in the Hall but none of us went.
