Wednesday 26th January 1916

It was a showery day.

I was not able to do anything outside in the way of planting, I caught as much rain water as I could and watered some of the plants with liquid manure.

In the afternoon Willie & Wi went down to the village, but the steamer was so late in arriving that neither of us stopped for the mail. The wind has been blowing from E for some days and it would be a rough trip to day.
