Saturday 12th February 1916

It was a very fine day. There was a nice cool breeze blowing which made it very pleasant.

Willie Dunning brought his horse here early in the morning to get my sulky to take me to Warkworth, we picked up Joe Torkington at the Ti Point Road. There was a cricket match at Warkworth between Omaha and Kaipara Flats, each side had two innings, Kaipara beat by 16 runs. I called on Mr Roydhouse, Editor of the Rodney, I took him a sample of wheat grown by J.C. Wyatt and had a long chat with him, also called on Mr Goerty coming back. I got out at Jims & staid the night.
