Sunday 17th December 1916

It was a very fine day. Carpenter went over to Ahomatariki to get some draft horses to cart wool and Henry went to Pembertons to get horses and two black bulls.

Lew came with young Downey to get his clothes and they staid for lunch. I staid at home and wrote a letter to Grace and enclosed it in the one I wrote to Willie while I was at Jack’s place.
