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

February 9th, 1901

The page for Saturday, February 9th says:

Arose 7 A.M. Office 7:30 A.M.
Nothing new all day.
Rain in afternoon after intense
heat. Mr. D.C.S. to go to Quasam-
ambi Mine with Mr & Mrs Franklyn
in the morning.
Books stuck me. Done the
best I could to go it alone.
Will ask Mr. Stapleton to assist.
Don't feel good over it.
Boy completed his tracing. And
done credible work. Again
dreaming of Bob Davis, Anna
and another.
Glad for Sunday to come for
reflection.
No baker at work here.
Mrs. C.G.F still cooking.
Mr. Stapleton put my tin box in
safe today.
(He is worried - McKenzie I think.
3 hours talk after Supper.
To put me in charge at P.R. when he goes to Guasamambi.
He and Pompeo to go to Guasamambi

Dreaming again of Bob Davis
Ball game - my side won. J Gomley 
and West sides playing.

Questions and comments:

  • There was a “Bob Davis” who was a Jersey City Sheriff and politician.
  • “Dreaming of Bob Davis, Anna and another”? If this was a novel, that would be foreshadowing.
