Thursday 17th October 1918

It was a very fine day.  Willie went down to J. C. Wyatts and brought up 110 White Leghorn chickens just of the incubator which he bought for 5d  each.  100 @ 5d   £2 . 1 . 8   the 10 extra ones were chucked in ,  he put them into the store for the present.  I resowed the Pale Dun & Canadian Wonder that the slugs had eaten ,  also sowed a row of Red Beet,  and dug up the piece of ground I intend to plant in Tomatoes.  I went down for the mail in the evening.
