Monday 4th September 1916

It was a beautiful day, quite hot in the middle of the day. The men went over to the clearing, they finished ploughing and started to harrow. Mr Davis came in the morning and took away a horse. At lunch time a boy came named Harry Williams, when Henry came home in the evening he engaged him to work here.

I was busy all day, I first plucked and prepared a Turkey, sowed a bed of Brown Spanish Onions, dug manure into a bed which I intend for Onions, burned off a heap of rubbish.
