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 great. I wish I were with my Anna Expect letters from her.
