The page for Thursday, March 28th says:
At office 6 A.M. A/cs in good shape for Sunday. No water last night nor to-day to pipe at Quasamambi. Mr. Moore wonders how the engineers figured so high. Talkes much over the futurety Will posted. realizes that N.Y. have forced Mr. D.C. Stapleton to take care of himself and friends. Commends him for his action - 48 hours for N.Y. to put up and comply with his demands. Hot day - 98° 12 Noon, 80° at 6 p.m. Two rainbows in succession then a lighting and thunderstorm. Startles boy somewhat. Some worrying about Anna - Wondering! How soon! Patience boy patience. John Moore, dynamiter, returns, wants $10 - refuse him. Must have an order from D.C.S. Get him medicine for his sick wife, though! This country is, well well tiresome. Enough to make me unsettled for anything. All has its end; must pray for patience to-night. Dreaming of McArdle last night on a spree - many politicians in a new house- galore was the fun - owned by Mrs. Brady. Winnie Morris held a $500 mortgage on it.

Questions and comments:
- “futurety” – I’m not sure what this word is supposed to be.
- “galore was the fun” – I’m not sure about ‘galore’.
- There was a Winnie Morris who was in a play in New York in September 1900
