It was a fine day, ‘tho dull. It came on a misty rain late in the pm. They made the final picking of the sheep in the morning, Mr Hay and a Maori assistant came to drive them down to Tokomaru Freezing Works, they had lunch here and then started away with them afterwards.

Jack sent sheep 166

In the afternoon Jack took a pack horse over to Pembertons and brought home two Kerosene boxes of apples.
