Thursday 29th November 1917

There was a slight rain first thing in the morning, but it soon cleared up and turned out a very fine day.

Dave went to Auckland in the “Kawau” which left here about 10am. Willie carted the remainder of the charcoal down to the wharf, the “Kawau” did not take any of their charcoal as she was full up with gum from Mangawai.

I took up and replanted several Dahlias near the summer house, also 5 Zinnias. I went down for the mail in the evening, there was a meeting of Fruitgrowers in the Library,  Mr Morrison of Warkworth attended to explain the business of the Fruitgrower’s federation.
