The page for Sunday, March 3rd says:
At office 5:50 A.M. Leva 5 p.m. take 45 minutes for devotions to God. Begin praying again. 130 men since 1st. Many sharp practices tried. Indians hard to understand. Speak little Spanish. Men told me family troubles when their a/cs are not good. Mr. Stapleton thoroughly business. A good man for a company. Think much of missing Mass. Boy dresses in his Sunday clothes - high collar. Great surprise manifested. The 1st white boy in this country to do it Will have to take a balance each Sunday. This is my First Sunday that I ever remember having worked. Well it was work too, though Mr. D.C.S. says in earlier times he did not eat though the other men did. My first eating was at 11:30 A.M., So for a greenhorn, did fairly well. Handled near $500 - in 2 days. Boy made 2 Altars for our home. We said prayers at night before each altar. Mementos all arranged. 2 inches of rain past 24 hours.
Questions and comments:
- I’m guessing that Playa de Oro pays their men monthly.
