Friday 8th October 1915

It was misty this morning, but after awhile the sun came out and it was fine. Duncan Knaggs came in the morning and told us that his mother (Mrs George Knaggs) had died yesterday afternoon, aged 85.

I sowed seeds of the following. Tomato (Mr Wallaces), Tomato (Yates), Cabbage (St John’s Day), also flower seeds, Cornflower (Mauve & Yellow), (Phlo+Drummondi), in boxes, and Escoltyia & Calliopsis Drummondi in the open border. In the afternoon I went down to the Steamer to get the mail. In the evening Grace & I went down to the choir practice, but there was none.
