It was Raymonds 3rd birth day. It was a fine day. No steamer to day, she is to leave Auckland tomorrow morning.
I was pulling tea tree the lower end of the barley paddock both morning & afternoon. Willie was working at his charcoal kiln.
Maggie Wyatt, Edith & Eyleen Torkington came in the afternoon and staid tea, Maggie went with us to the Mutual Improvement Society , the subject for debate was “Can a man get rich honestly?” Dan Kempt, Duncan Knaggs and I took the affirmative & Ernest Wyatt and Joe Torkington the negative, the meeting decided in favour of the negative.
