Wednesday 14th August 1918

It rained heavily last night and early this morning,  Willie & I continued planting Potatoes in the new garden, there were a few slight showers .  In the afternoon I went down to the steamer, Jane returned home and Jim came to meet her, but as the roads are so bad he thought it best for her to go round to Ti Point in the steamer and he would take a sulky to meet her at the pipi bank.
Willie took a box of eggs down to the wharf and hauled up groceries and ½ Cwt Seed Potatoes  (Up to Dates).  It rained heavily in the evening.
