Wednesday 16th December 1914

It was very dull when we got up but it did not rain last night as we thought it would. Willie went to work in the quarry, but it came on to rain steadily and he only worked till 10am and then he came home wet.

As I could not do any work outside I wrote a lot of letters.

Willie hauled his fruit down to the wharf in the afternoon. I went down for the mail. Bertie Witten & his bride came from Auckland by the “Kawau” this afternoon, having only gone to town yesterday, they were married at Pakiri last Monday morning by Revd Spiers (Methodist) of Warkworth.
