Monday 5th February 1917

The wind has changed to the W and the mist has cleared away and we were hoping it was going to be fine weather but it came over showery which continued all day. The river is still very big. There must have something happened to the telephone line as we could get no communication even with Metcalfs.

I sowed a row of Yorkshire Hero Peas where the potatoes came out and a short row of Peerlers Peas (Suttons) near the house. Jack came from Tangihanga in the evening.
