Saturday 16th September 1916

It was a fine day. Henry & I drove down to Mr Halliwell where we had a cup of tea, & then Henry & I & Mr H & Mr Davis drove down to the sale yard below the letter box where the first stock sale of the season was held. There were only a few hundred sheep in the pens. Mr H took down 2 young Berkshire pigs which were sold for 3 guineas each. Harry took a horse of Henry’s down for sale but it was not sold.

Jack was at the sale, and after it was over he and Henry went to Te Araroa. I returned with the Halliwells and had lunch there, I walked home afterwards.
