Saturday 4th August 1917

It was a fine day. Jack & his wife & George returned to Auckland by the “Kawau” leaving this wharf at 10.30am, all of us went down to see them off and then Jane returned home, we were very sorry that Jack & his wife could not make a longer stay but they have to leave Auckland next Wednesday by the “Mako”.

Willie & Dave finished sacking up the charcoal, they have 58 sacks.

In the afternoon I went the other side of the hill to cut firewood, I carried two loads home.
