Thursday 13th

It was a showery day. I went down to the wharf in the morning. The Kawau was supposed to leave here at 1pm but according to Auckland port regulations all vessels have to be in port before sundown, so the Kawau had to leave here before her advertised time. The men who had volunteered for foreign service went up by her.

I went down to the village in the evening to get the mail and attend the Library.
