Sunday 25

Very nice, bright day. Went to Church in the morning: to SSchool P.M. Afterwards took a stroll with Alf and Sam to Martins to see the damage inflicted by the water. There is a black (I am just after telling Papa to get on his "stovepipe" and "black kids" therefore the mistake "black)" He is going over to see Mr Muir with mamma) break in the dam of about 30 ft caused by the rush of water. All the boys are to Mr Murray's church.
