Thursday 3rd May 1917

It was a fine day.

Fred Galbraith returned to Tangihanga in the buggy taking goods for Jack & Henry. I was sorry to part with my young friend as he is a very nice chap.

Miss Haughton rung me up and asked me to go up to the Hospital this afternoon, so I walked up, had afternoon tea and had a look at her garden, also stopped for the evening, Mr Forester (Postmaster) and his young lady, the assistant in the Post Office and Mr Allen of the Trading company came for tea and we spent a very pleasant evening with gramaphone selections & cards. During the evening it poured with rain and we had a very wet & muddy walk down to the township arriving there after midnight.
