Tuesday 8th December 1914

After breakfast I went down to the village to help Revd Macdonald measure off the Church site. After I returned home I commenced picking Evans Early plums, Mrs Simpson and Grace were helping in the afternoon and after tea Willie came out and was helping, we picked 12 Cases. I was very bad with a cold on my chest in the evening and went to bed early. Willie put hot flannels on my chest which gave me great relief.
