The page for Friday, March 22nd says:
At office 5:45 A.M. Mr Stapleton comes from Quasamambi to go and look over Meisner's work at Sajado. Return at 12:30 p.m. 2 cups of tea until now. Dieting with a vengeance. Mr. Moore again talks freely of N.Y. office treating him in such a dishonest way. Ed Woodruff his boyhood friend, lawyer at 120 Broadway, N.Y. City. He is to call on Franklyn, Ward, and Coats - then visit 31 Nassau St. Again another day of low spirits. Time is slow in passing. Though I earnestly try to busy myself with a/cs. Much earnest thought of God. Asking for the grace of patience. Thuner tonight. Truly a country to make a man lazy. Oh for Anna to cheer me on. Newcomer in our town. Mr. D.C. Stapleton questioned her closely. Afraid of dysentery attack on this camp. Saw pickle from the pork bottled by the cook from Quasamambi Mine to be used instead of salt. Malo! Malo. Early days threw even the salt away.
