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

February 10th, 1901

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.
