Saturday 15th June 1918

It was a fine day.  There was a working bee at the Cemetery in the morning.  I went down to help, we finished before dinner.  There was a meeting in the Library immediately after and a petition was organised [?] to be sent to the Minister of Internal Affairs asking permission to elect  local Trustees for the Cemetery and the following persons were nominated,  Messrs J. C. Wyatt,  Alex Matheson,  A. Haskell,  D. W. Knaggs  &  C. S. Clarke.

In the afternoon I went down to the Church to fix up the lamps for tomorrow evening,  I found that the kerosene had leaked out of the tin, so I had to get a new tin from Harpers.

Willie was intending to set fire to his kiln, but it came on so showery that he deferred doing so until tomorrow morning.
