Thursday 5th October 1916

It was not a very pleasant day, there were several showers.

The men went out early to dock the Lambs at Pembertons, they only docked one paddock. Mr Halliwell came over in the afternoon to beg a few lemons as his little girl is not very well and the Doctor ordered them.

I wrote a long letter to Arthur Greenwood and gave it to Mr Halliwell to post. I sowed seeds of Lettuce near matai stump.
