The page for Monday, April 29th says:
At office 6 A.M. Did good work until 2 p.m. headache, no food from 6 A.M. trying on one. Gerald goes over the line to Sajado. Have much conversation with him in the evening. Tells me he is not going back to the States again. Competition too close, and so much rascally doings going on among our best people. Downey too has gold fever from Jim Nugent. Might take a hunt for gold himself. Gerald says it will take much lumber to open Sajado Mine. Thinks it would be wise to close down until lumber is here, pay all hands, then, a person can have the heart to rush the work. Boy in good appetite. River high to-night - this means more delay for our cargo. Dreaming of Jim Gormley last night. Told me that no word from California. I wonder if Anna wrote to him.
