Saturday 6th July 1918

It was a fine day, but cold.

We got up early as Lily and George were leaving today by the “Kawau” at 8 am.  Willie drove them down to the wharf , Grace and I also went down to see them off.  Keith Matheson, Ted Gravatt & Andy Biorklund also left to return to camp as this is their final leave, a crowd of people were down to see them off and give them a cheer.

Willie was working at the drive.  In the afternoon I was pulling tea tree in barley paddock.  Flo’ and Edith came in the pm and staid the night.
