The page for Tuesday, April 23rd says:
At office 5:50 A.M. Hear Mr. D.C. Stapleton leaves on 25th for Quayaquil. Mr. Gerald Stapleton arrives with a friend Jim Nugent from Panama. Office sends down Mr. J.T. Downey. Provisions are at Limones. They met Mr. A.L. Moore & son at Buenaventura. Mr. Franklyn evidentially doing good work. Answered Harry's letter. Talked with Gerald until 10:30 p.m. E. Campo came up with him to Concepcion. Afraid of his being shot! Food being en route cheers one up. Kept Francis on roadways. Downey very quiet for some reason. Nugent a keen one. Sent Meisner word that Mr. D.C.S. leaves Thursday. by note from Mr. D.C.S. through Sam Taylor, cook.

Questions and comments:
- Lots of new people in the camp today.
- Gerald Stapleton is Daniel Stapleton’s brother.
- I’m not sure about the word before “Francis”.
- “Harry”, who he wrote to, is almost certainly his brother.
