Saturday 14th October 1916

It was a very fine day. Tom Pearce came out from Te Araroa to help them dock Lambs, Jack left them about noon when they had mustered, went down to Te Araroa and called in here on his way home. They were docking until after dark.

I walked down to Mr Halliwells in the morning to spend the day. Mr & Mrs Whitehead (the school teacher of Te Araroa) were there.
