The page for Friday, March 15th says:
At office 5:40 A.M. Mr. Stapleton did not get of for Quasamambi Mine to-day. Sent me word by note to send 4 men to work at Mine to-night. Did so. I learn he is sick up there. Mr. Moore to go there to-morrow. In full charge of the office and general supervision during absence of Mr. Stapleton Mr. A. L. Moore sleeping at General Manager's house for protection. No mail leaves to-day. I wonder when To-day the hottest yet. 98° at 1:30 p.m. Raining to-night. St. Claire Moore gives Robt. Bennett full Day when he only worked 1/2 day. That thing would not go with me. Too much interested I guess. Why cannot I do only as little as some. One invariably gets the worst of it. Think of foreman reading books while his men work.
Questions and comments:
- I believe that this is the first mention of Robert Bennett.
