It was a very fine day. Willie & Dave went down to the Koeroa and started making a charcoal Kiln. In the afternoon they continued earthing up Potatoes. Dave took his trap down to the wharf when the steamer arrived and carted fowl feed up to his place. In the morning I went down to the beach and carried sand round to the wharf, and W. Dunning carted it up to our gate for me. I planted several plants that Mrs Wallace gave me (Calliopsis) also 1 Cosmea.
