A showery day. I was helping Willie dig in the orchard in the afternoon. Went down for the mail and attended the Library in the evening. There was a public meeting in the Library called by Mrs Harper as she has sent in her resignation as post-mistress on account of insufficient pay. The meeting decided to ask the postal authorities to increase her pay. J.C. Wyatt & I were appointed to draw out a letter to that effect to be sent to the Chief Postmaster, Auckland.
