Wednesday 16th October 1918

It was a fine day, but it rained again last night and everything was very wet this morning.  I got firewood on the hill, cut down and put a handle to a benzene tin, went down to the village in the afternoon to post a letter to my son Henry and also one to Mr Goertz containing an order for £5 being our half yearly guarantee to the Anglican Church.  Willie was putting the finishing touches to the brooders and chicken yards , in the pm he took the sulky down to the wharf with 20 Doz Eggs and 20 lb  butter and brought up fowl grit.
