Wednesday 26th December 1917

It was a very fine day.  Willie, Grace & Raymond drove to Matakana to spend the day at John Came’s.   I was not very well so stopped at home.  I planted a Petunia that Mrs D. Matheson gave me.  Mrs Knowles came in the evening and then they all went down to the Hall to a patriotic social.  I staid at home.

I heard afterwards that over £8 was taken at the social last night.
