Tuesday 18th July 1916

It was a fine day. Henry & I embarked on board the “Kawau” for Auckland, I am going back with Henry to Te Araroa on a visit, Jane, Willie, Grace and Mrs Simpson came to see us off. We had a fine passage up. I went across to the Shore to stay with my very good friends Mr & Mrs Wallace. Henry went to board at Windomere in Scotia Place, Upper Queen St.
