Monday 14th February 1916

It was bright in the morning, dull in the afternoon and fine rain in the evening. In the morning I went down to the Library to catalogue the book that came last Friday night from the Book Exchange, in the afternoon I straightened up the office and planted a row of Celery that Grace sent from Auckland. Willie sowed John Bull Turnips in the orchard and harrowed it afterwards and in the afternoon he picked and packed Pears (Beurre Capinmont).
