Monday 27th November 1916

It was very dull in the morning and we thought it was going to rain, but it turned out a fine day.

Henry & the men got up very early and went mustering the sheep, but the maoris did not commence to shear until the afternoon. John and Miss Kirvell came over just before lunch and both staid the night.

I was working in the garden, I finished digging out sorrel between the young cabbage plants, I earthed up the 3 rows of Potatoes & 4 rows of Beans, dug out the sorrel round an Apple tree and wheeled a lot of stones out of the garden.
