The page for Friday, February 8th says:
Arose 6:30 AM. At work 7:30 A.M. Making some progress with a/cs Visited pipe warehouse - saw much. D.C.S. gone to Quasamambi to quiet McKenzie. Miesner tells me McKenzie will be through in 3 days. Are other men coming down here. Money talk!! Waiting for iron to come. No hope now until Tuesday next. Jar - don't know when. Mr & Mrs C.G.F talk much of their previous travels, entertaining Prince of Wales in a shooting box in Scotland. Sir ... Peet formerly had it. Mrs. C.G.F. still trying her hand at cooking for us. Boy worked hard on his tracing. D.C.S. thinks and says Mr. C.G.F the most cold-blooded man he ever met. No comment on work done at Sapago Grande. Not much rain. 2 weeks here. Mr. Stapleton thinks my plan is to prepare for the future entire management of the N.Y. Office. Donney Gerald to be cabled for to come here - Hurrah!
