We make the change because it is not convenient to have the room one sleeps in a passage room and that the sitting room and kitchen may be close together. 3 the bay window and 4 and 5 are sitting room windows, 6 window of Lely's bedroom. 1, 2, and 3 look due east to the Henui river. 4, 5, and 6 due North, we see towards the road from them, I shall have a wider view next year when the bush between our clearing and D. Atkinson's is to be felled. We see the back end of Harry's house from the North windows, he lies North west of us. The front door so to speak, is at the back of the house in a passage between the two bodies of the house and connecting them. The fence in the front is going to be moved so as to enlarge the garden considerably and the gate will be moved to the right a good way so that a path from it may lead naturally to the door."
