The story of Nathaniel McHorney's 1901 trip to Ecuador.

February 1st, 1901

The page for Friday, February 1st says:

Arose 6 a.m. At work in office 7:10 a.m.
until 11 a.m. 11:30 to 4:30 p.m.
and its a hard task too, going at
books and balances, 6 months back.
Am getting there though - ??
Have thought of missing my Holy
Communion on the 1st Friday - The
day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Talked with D.C.S. on religion. He is a
true catholic.
Rain again today - am tired.
C.G.F. at office 45 minutes looking
over ?afes?. Surprised that Mr. D.C.S. had
had all this to do.
One month nearer to my Anna.
Mrs. C.G.F. promised me some views taken
by her on our trip here.
Meisner talking much - no money - no
food for the men. Mine will not pay.
Grade should be heavier. Discouraging
No clean up of Boqueron - Fiesta tomorrow.
Candlemas Day to be observed including
Sunday. One week gone. Not an
invitation to spend an evening with C.G.F.
Lack of feeling - Pompeo and others
changing a prayers tonight. Edifying.

Questions and comments:

  • Candlemas Day is February 2nd.
  • I don’t know what C.G.F. was looking over in the office.
  • “Not an invitation” seems wrong, but that’s what it looks like to me.
