Wednesday 6th March 1918

It was fine in the morning.  I was digging the top side of the house.  In the afternoon I went down to the village to meet the steamer, the wind was blowing strong from SE, so the steamer went into Big Omaha, so I had to come home without bread, meat or mail.

Willie & Dave sacked up their charcoal, the kiln turned out 65 sacks. Mrs James Torkington came here in the morning and as it rained in the afternoon she staid the night.
