Tuesday 26th December 1916 Boxing Day

It kept fine although it threatened rain. There were sports at Te Araroa to day, the proceeds to go to the Belgium Fund. Henry, Lily & Milley drove in the buggey, Jack & I riding, when about a mile down the river from Jack’s place the pole of the buggy broke and it had to be fixed up with a Wicker & wire which considerably delayed us. I only went down as far as the letter box and then from there I walked home. The others proceeded on to Te Araroa. Jack & Lily rode to their home and Milley came with Henry in the buggey. They did not reach here until 8pm.
