The page for Wednesday, February 20th says:
Arose at 7 A.M. At work 7:40 A.M. work until 10:20 A.M. Mr. Franklyn at work at 9 A.M. Heat today rather the best of me. My head is not steady. Too much quinine I fancy. No rain for the last 24 hours. Mr. Franklyn at work again in the afternoon. Both of use sorely puzzled at a/cs. He says we need a feature a/c - i.e, what they call our money - and commissary given credit - thusly, etc. It is now 7 p.m. my eyes are blurred and cannot see good. Did not smoke this first day of Lent. My sacrificial offering for a penance. Was dreaming of Anna & Adelaide Monday night - At a dance. I grow jealous. Anna simply ignores me. Feel Miserable. Tough to have temper, eh! Meisner called an remained an hour. Goes to Sajado on Monday next. Told me much of mine - Fred Cook, Swansborough.

Questions and comments:
- The only “Adelaide“ I know of is Adelaide Lauterbach, Anna’s younger sister, who was born in 1878.
- This is the first mention of Fred Cook.
