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

March 12th, 1901

The page for Tuesday, March 12th says:

At office 5:45 A.M. Hot day all through.
Oh that galvanized roof.
Headache most of the afternoon.
No one will carry mail to Borbon.
Afraid of dysentery, etc.
Gave all my knowledge of affairs
to Mr. D.C. Stapleton.
He said C.G.F. said as much as told him
tie up to McHorney - by inference, and
not direct. Glad I made clean talk.
Now for the big end of it. He said ...
with your contract. I will take good
care of those who stand and have stood
by me. Wants Gerald here with Downey.
No Bancus game for him. Too small.
Hot night - whew.
When it is all over and my Anna
is travelling to London with me
I can give her the details of this 
game. Boy at photographs - 
Next week hope to get mail
from Anna.
Will soon tackle monthly statements.

Questions and comments:

  • A week ago, there were reports of Smallpox downriver.
  • Sounds like there’s a battle shaping up between the N.Y. office and the people at the mines.
