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

March 8th, 1901

The page for Friday, March 8th says:

At office 5:40 A.M.
Waiting for Mr. Stapleton to return. He is
off with Mr. Moore.
Truly a strange deal on hand.
The least said in a diary the better.
Received letter from Maria. S.J. too.
Papers from N.Y "Herald" of date Feb 18.
Mr. Hazelton took home and
arranged time on 4 more sheets.
Mr. Moore and son trying to learn

Questions and comments:

  • Mr. Moore, I believe arrived the day before (March 7th)
  • He’s brought some news from New York that Nathaniel doesn’t like (and doesn’t want to write down)
  • “Maria” could be his sister Marie.
  • This is, I believe, the first mention of Mr. Hazelton.
