The page for Sunday, January 27th says:
Read Thomas a' Kempis Played Phonograph for the natives Wrote to H.D. McH - a general family letter - also to Willie McH for to see Sr. Teresa about Rosaries, etc. G.G.D. letter mail leaves early tomorrow. Notified N.Y. office of my arrival. Promised to go more into detail about shipments - i.e, later on. D.C.S tells me to to at the books tomorrow, and to post up. Mr & Mrs C.G.F chatty at supper Many talks about the ?supperten? We are eating from the Dinner Service given to Mrs. G.G.F. by the N.Y Journal for the best arranged breakfast at the cost of 50 cents. Strange how and where things occur. 9 p.m. - go to bed. Rain.

Questions and comments:
- Thomas a’ Kempis was a medieval Catholic monk and author (see also Jan 13th entry)
- I can’t tell what word that I wrote as “supperten” is meant to be.
- “H.D. McH” should be Harry David McHorney (b 18-Aug-1868), Nathaniel’s younger brother.
- “Willie McH” should be William A. McHorney (b 17-May-1876), another younger brother.
