The page for Friday, April 12th says:
At office 6 A.M. Worked 4 hours correcting laborers pay roll. Uneventful day. Boy gave Mr. D.C. Stapleton one hour's selections from the phonograph. "Thank you very much son" Rather inclined to deep thought I fancy. Not much of a companionable man though strictly just. It is strange for me to associate with such a man. Much thought of the word home. Money is not enough to keep one from home to gain it. Boy at his Spanish to-day. It looks like a deserted village here just now. A meagre store-keeper, cook and self and boy, only ones here. Mr. Meisner to leave here with Mr. Stapleton on the 23rd of April.
