Saturday 17th February 1917

It was a very hot day. Carpenter went down to Te Araroa with the waggon and 8 bales of wool. Bill Schneiderman left here after lunch, he is going down to Cape Runaway.

Henry dipped some Rams and then put them out.

The married couple (Corbett) and 4 men came up in the waggon from Te Araroa having arrived by the Kahu at 6am.  Two of the men are for Jack.

I was busy clearing up and cooking. I had to supply dinner for 9 persons.
