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

March 21st, 1901

The page for Thursday, March 21st says:

At office 5:10 A.M. getting men off to
Sajado Pipe Line.
Meisner writes his gang dwindled down
from 17 to six men. Feast days - preparing
for Holy Week and Easter.
Try again at August Trial Balance.
No go as yet.
To-day is my birth-day. Day very bright.
Young Moore asked if I were keeping a diary.
We copied his father's diary. It might be
useful for the Company.
Raining to-night.
Boy did well to-day - working around office.
No one from Playa de Oro would take
Mr. A. L. Moore to Nimbi. Sickness too
I wish I were with my Anna
Expect letters from her.
