The Diary in May


Life on a Kenyan farm.
 Budgets, Bank Managers, and the installation of an electric light engine produce different reactions.

May 1st – 13th

Budgets, leopard skins and garden work. The Bank Manager comes to stay…and Wynne’s Mother offers to pay for the installation of an electric light generator.

May 14th – 22nd

Work on the lighting system continues…and the post boy is arrested, so no mail arrives.

May 23rd – 31st

Rain comes in torrents. The electric engine is started to run it in, and a favourite cat is killed.
