Fine day. Down to
office. Not much doing.
Saw J Compton re selling his
Kumeroa property to M Kerins.
Hill up from Wellington with view
to opening up a butchery business
& Bern took him out to Lansdowne
to see if he could locate a spot
for a shop if he considered it
a good venture.
Further news from India state
that the British forces including
native troops have had sharp
fighting against the Afghans &
driven them back from the border
inflicting considerable loss, the
aeroplanes flying over the retreat
ing Afghans & scattering them in
all directions. Allied forces in
Northern Russia giving the Russian
Bolshevics [Bolsheviks] a good doing, driving
them from their positions. So far
60,000 Bolshevic prisoners
