The page for Thursday, January 17th says:
Dreary and wet - rains very fast. Happy again found a shirt. Look quite strange. Fishing lines still out - no catch for yesterday Have caught fish weighing 207 lbs. Thunder and lightning Pacific coast - water & sky Joy indeed - Boy found my rosary. Land in sight - Central Northern part of Buenaventura - say 5 miles off 6 p.m. a gloriously beautiful sunset. Boy singing "Traige me" to J.C. "where we so happy and so pore" 7:30 p.m. stuck in the mud - wrecked off Buenaventura. 1 hour. Captain treats C.J.F and myself. Custom House officers come aboard - 3 of them. They look like monkeys - comical and dignified. Scenery beautiful from the boat. 1st officer says here comes the hummers - for a couple of meals. Retire at 10 p.m. (as always, you can click on the image to get a larger view) Questions and comments:
- “Joy Indeed” was underlined.
- I’m not sure about the second word in the second line.
- I’m also not sure about the first word in the penultimate line.
- And the song quotes have me baffled.
