Saturday 26th December 1914

It was a fine day. In the morning I went down to the village to send some lemons by Charlie Dunning to Jane. Heard that Mrs Lloyd had died suddenly last night. Alf Gravatt came up here afterwards to ask me to read the service over Mrs Lloyd tomorrow at 2.30. Harold & Flo drove over in the afternoon & staid tea, they gave me a lift when they were returning home, as far as the Ti Point road and then I walked on to Jims, staid the night.
