Saturday 19th December 1914

It was a very hot day. Willie did not go to the quarry to day. We were all picking plums in the morning. We picked 14 Cases of Tibbitt’s & 3 Cases Wright’s Early and Willie hauled them down to the wharf, the Steamer left here at 11.15 am. Willie was picking plums in the afternoon to send away next week. I planted 2 Cornflowers & 3 Stocks near the arch.

Mrs Simpson walked over to Ti Point in the evening to stay all night.
