Saturday 26th September 1914

It was a fine day. In the morning Willie took the horse down to the wharf and hauled up 2 bags of manure, a box of groceries and a bag of sand for me that I sieved and brought round to the wharf yesterday. In the morning also Grace & Mrs Simpson went to Mr Glass’ to spend the day and Mrs S stayed with Mrs G to  help her.

In the afternoon I was helping Willie plant Onion plants that Mr Wallace sent. There was a football match at the Claim between Mangawai and Omaha in the afternoon, Omaha won. There was a dance in the Hall in the evening, but none of us went.
