Thursday 13th January 1916

It was a very fine day. Willie expected Cyrus Matheson to come and help him thrash Danthonia, but he did not come so I was helping him both morning and afternoon. Willie carted his butter and eggs down to the wharf and brought up a load of cases. Dr Jenkins of Warkworth saw Mr Glass and pronounced that he had appendicitis so Wm Dunning took him down to the steamer in his waggon to go to Auckland Hospital to be operated on.

Chas Wyatts boys were carting their Wheat crop into their barn.

In the evening I went down for the mail & attended the Library, the Annual Meeting of Subscribers was held, only five being present. The old Committee was re-elected.
