Friday 7th

There were some showers last night but it was fine to day. Willie was pruning the apple trees in the pigs paddock and the peaches just below the house. In the afternoon Willie took the catamaran down to the wharf, I went down to post some letters, I put some sand and Willie hauled it up for me with 2 bags of flour that came by the Steamer to day.

Mr Torkington came up by the Kawau and he gave me this mornings paper containing news of the war.
