Thursday 10th December 1914

It was a fine day. Polling Day throughout New Zealand for Member of the House of Representatives. In the afternoon I went to see Mr G. Knaggs who is very ill, I made his will and Mrs Rogers & I were the Witnesses. I had tea there, returned home and then went down to the Hall to record my vote, I walked down to get the mail & attend the Library, staid down till 10.30 to hear the returns as they came in. It came on a misty rain and dark. I got wet coming home and had a difficulty in finding my way.
