Tuesday 6th March 1917

I intended to go to Mr Halliwell’s to day and had made all arrangements for doing so, but just as I was going to start there was a long shower of rain, so I rang up Mrs Halliwell to tell her I was not coming, but afterwards it came on so fine that I started at 10.30 am.

I found Mr H & Mr Davies and a man ploughing out and picking up potatoes in a paddock near the house, I had lunch there, Mrs H. lent me some books to read and then I started to Tangihanga reaching there at 5pm.

Jack Johnson came with a pack horse and took his luggage way.
