The page for Tuesday, April 2nd says:
At office 6:10 A.M. Working at many different things. Takes up much time. Mr. Moore sent for me to come to his house. Read to me his conclusion of his report. Its straight goods too. Told me had signed it now in case of anything happening him. I saw his signature to it. Altogether another mixed up data of it. Mail may come? Food and provisions mostly all out. Rice and tea, plantains; plenty on hand. Some fun down here watching Francis dealing with a tobacco sharp. No dicker made. Tobacco $4 a pound here.
