Tuesday 27th June 1916

It was a fine day. Wind SW. Willie was working in the quarry. After breakfast I went down to the village to get the mail, called in at Archie Dunnings to see the war news, saw that the SS Tarawera had arrived in Auckland from the coast on Sunday and there was a Clarke among the passengers which no doubt would be Henry. I was cutting tea tree on the hill & on the farm.
