Tuesday 22nd January 1918

It was a very hot day.  Went across to Auckland in the afternoon, took the car up to Cemetery Bridge and walked to the Domain gardens which are a blaze of colour, the glass houses are full of beautiful flowers & ferns, the Gloxinias were the finest I had seen  and so many shades of colours.  I met Mrs Rogers there and her daughters Mrs Blackburn and Mrs W. Savage and her son.
Mr Wallace and I went to the Pictures, the chief piece being ‘Man and his Soul ‘
