Thursday 15th March 1917

It was a fine day. The “Mako” is expected to arrive at Te Araroa from Acukland to day and Henry is expecting a married couple up by her, so Henry & I returned to Tangihanga in the morning and after lunch Henry went down to Te Araroa to meet the married couple.

Jimmy Hayes brought a flock of sheep here to dip them.

Henry rang me up in the evening to say that the “Mako” had only just arrived and that he would not be coming home to night.
