It was a very fine day. In the morning I walked over to Ti Point. I called at Harolds and had lunch there. Arthur Wilson was ploughing for him. I afterwards went down to Joes, Minnie was fishing down at the wharf, but as she had no luck, she came home and showed me her garden and gave me afternoon tea. On my way home I called down at the village to get the mail, Mr Woods came back from Auckland by The “Kawau” and he gave me two newspapers.
