The page for Thursday, February 21st says:
Arose at 7 A.M. At work 7:30 A.M. C.G. Franklyn comes about 9 A.M. All hands at books. August cash will not come out even. Mr. Franklyn tells me to do it a certain way - it will show the deficit. Today I gave my proxy to Mr. Franklyn in as much as Mr. Stapleton was willing. Mrs. C.G.F presents me with a book. Got a/cs so that they can be posted in due order. Worked until 5 p.m. Mr. D.C. Stapleton informs me he told Mr. Franklyn he is sending for his brother Gerald. Sapago Grande next to be looked after. Day very pleasant - 2nd day without smoking. Gradually getting used to it or is it because mail is due tomorrow or Sunday Gerald not likely to get here as quickly as Downey. Thermometer drops as low as 78° each P.M.

Questions and comments:
- Who is Downey?
- That answers my question about Gerald Stapleton from 2/16 – he is D.C.’s brother.
