Thursday 16th August 1917

It was a very fine day. Willie went to Auckland per “Kawau” at 8am this morning, Grace went to see him off. He is going up to Dargaville.

I was pulling up tea tree & cutting wood. I had to milk the cow this evening. In the evening I went down for the mail & to change my Library book. I received a wire from Jack asking me to see D. Knaggs about going down to Te Araroa to re-erect his wool-shed.
