The page for Wednesday, March 6th says:
At office 6:10 A.M. Working at pay rolls yet. Men at times insolent for money. From 3 to 5 p.m. hard at it cleaning out room No 3 - 4 men going steadily. Mr. Stapleton knows just how much work to lay out for this kind of a workman. Canoe arrived at 5:10 p.m. but did not bring mail though it could have time to have received it. Boy much better. Am over my scare. Wonder how Anna is getting along. Mr. D.C. Stapleton took cold yesterday at Sapayo Grande. (as always, you can click on the image to get a larger view)
Questions and comments:
- I wonder if Nathaniel will think about whether “Mr. Stapleton knows just how much work to lay out for this kind of a workman” applies to himself as well.
