Monday 4th October 1915

It was a fine day. In the morning I was helping Willie plant Onions in the farm orchard. In the afternoon I went to Addisons and Ashworths to tell them about a meeting of the Fruitgrowers Association this evening. In the evening Willie & I went down to the Hall to the Fruitgrowers meeting, 6 persons present signed a petition to the Minister of Agriculture re N.Z Fruitgrowers Federation. Mr J.C. Wyatt was elected President & Mr Glass Secretary & Treasurer of the Association & I handed over to Mr Glass the sum of £1.18.6 which I had held since Mr Rhodes left. After the meeting all of us went down to the wharf when the Kawau arrived from Auckland. Jack & Henry sent Willie a Cultivator as a present, it arrived by the steamer to night.
