The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1913
"A southerly wind and a cloudy sky" betokened ill for the picnic on Tuesday evening, but none the less the affair was great success. The Duchess bore us down the harbour almost to the Heads, the Maori being vociferously farewelled en route, and then put us ashore at Rona Bay. Thence the whole party proceeded on foot to Day's Bay, and further proceeded to demolish the supper spread in the Pavilion. A dance followed, but alas! valuable time had been spent on the trip down the harbour, and hardly had we got into our stride, so to speak, when it was time to return to the boat. Songs and choruses helped to pass the time, all too short, before we reached the Ferry Wharf to the strains of 'This is the ending of a perfect Day."
