Saturday 22nd August 1914

Willie took the horse down to the wharf to bring up some oats that came by the steamer last night, he hauled two bags of sand up for me. Late in the afternoon I walked over to the Claim and staid the night at Jims, he was away at a football match at Matakana between the boys of that place and Omaha when we arrived, when he returned home he reported that Seymour Smith who plays for Matakana broke his leg while playing.
