A dull day and late in the afternoon settled into a steady rain. It was a busy day with me. After breakfast I went down to the village to post some letters, after I came back I commenced to cut firewood when the axe handle broke and I had to go down to the village to get an axe handle, put it in and cut enough wood for to day and tomorrow. Then I had my lunch and went down to the Hall to a meeting of the church committee, Revd Macdonald being present and occupied the chair, a lot of unimportant business was done. It continued to rain all night.
