The page for Sunday, February 10th says:
Arose at 7:10 A.M. Said my rosary. Thoughtful sorrowful, and am reading. 8:40 Mr. Stapleton & C.G.F. party just passed enroute to Quasamambi. Truly a strange world. I trying to find understanding in meditation and prayer. Well no more !! Later on in much better feeling result of praying. Happy. Mrs. Franklyn solicitous about my health - gave me bottle of quinine - insisted that I take 6 grs at once and continue it daily until better - made cup of tea for me. Much talk about con- dition of P de O affairs. Trusts that I will not write discouraging letters to Mr. S.A.C & Wm H Young A long talk with Mr. D.C. Stapleton in evening - acquainted him with all the facts. Meisner again at it about money. Men bothering Mr. Stapleton about pay day. Rain as usual. Started a Novena today.

Questions and comments:
- Wm H. Young was the president of the Plata De Oro Mining company in 1897.
- S.A.C. is almost certainly S.A. Coates, an officer of the P de O company.
