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. (as always, you can click on the image to get a larger view)
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.
