Tuesday 22nd August 1916

It was a fine day. Carpenter took the dray down to Te Araroa to cart timber for this station, he was late returning so he left the loaded dray at Halliwells and brought the horses on here after dark.

I started to dig in the garden next the macrocarpa hedge near the Dairy, the ground looks better than I thought it was, I dug out a lot of stones, docks, sorrel & other bad weeds.
