The steamer did not come last night on account of the easterly wind, but she came this morning and proceeded to Mangawai calling in here again in the afternoon at 3.30. The wind is still easterly, but has moderated. It was a fine day. I sowed seeds of Mina Lobata in a flower pot, also seeds in the border of Zinnia Elegans & Portulaca (Abrahams seeds), also planted 2 Stocks and 1 Candituft.
Keith Entwisle returned to Auckland in the steamer, Grace & Raymond also went to Auckland, Willie drove them down to the wharf and he brought up 3 bags of sand for me.
