The page for Saturday, March 9th says:
At office 5:55 A.M. Left 9:50 p.m. Another "Stapleton" day for work. Mr. Stapleton and Mr. Moore off to Sapayo Canal 7 A.M. Return at 5:45 p.m. Mr. Moore says Mr. Stapleton a d- for doing such a work on construction. He never would; he thinks ut a magnificent piece of work., Wonders at Mr. Stapleton's energy. Paying out features. A/cs all OK for another Sunday. Work - Work - ! ! Must write Uncle Dudley Ward a letter full of details - though he hates long letters. Devotions tonight in commemoration of usual weekly confession. Mail leaves to-morrow. Much talk over matters. I fully agree with Mr. D.C. Stapleton in all matters.

Questions and comments:
- The last word on the sixth line “d–” is obscured by a dimple in the paper.
- I don’t know of any relative to Nathaniel named “Dudley Ward”.
- Nathaniel is quite impressed with Mr. Stapleton.
