South Pacific Survey, 16 June 1951, Apia

No work today as the sweeps need modifying and present practice this means at least 3 days.

Rather a strange business this, the people who operated the original sweeps havent a clue as to what is necessary to make them tick or work, yet the people who were not even on them can tell you what is wrong and any idea which one may have is just not acceptable, however we are here only to fly the boat.

Wrote to my family today and stuck lots of stamps on just to give them something to bargain then wandered down to the Post Office in the pouring rain to post them.

Bought some socks and stockings and had a brief look around the shops then home. Spent part of the afternoon in bed and a short walk and sat around and yarned and as I have a slightly sore head, mainly ear I am off to bed.
