Sunday 29th April 1917

There was a slight shower in the morning but it turned out a fine day. Henry who has been called up in the ballot started to ride down to Gisborne to present himself to the Medical Board next Tuesday May 1st, before going he made me a present of a cheque for £20 – as most likely I shall be away before he gets back.

Jack went over to Ahomatariki to see how the men are getting on.

I rode down to Mr Halliwells to spent the day and spent a very pleasant time, they have been very kind to me since I have been here.
