The page for Monday, May 6th says:
At office 6 A.M. Many carpenters in this camp. Geo Roofe says the people are starving. No plantains to eat. In Play de Oro it is even worse. People shiftless, and no money, being here, not a canoe up the river for the past two weeks. The afternoon a beautiful one Work hard for 7 hours to-day. Gerald gome up over the line - left at 7 A.M. - not back at 7 p.m. Boy and I talk much about Dulzura. Womenfolks make fun of me as I pass their house en route to blacksmith shop to-day. I treat it with contempt - but still I wonder at the reason for it. Double rainbow to-night. About 20 lbs of pork left. Well, I am very tired of eating it.

Questions and comments:
- I think that this is the first mention of George Roofe.
- Again, talking about Dulzura – there’s only one that I know of, and it is outside San Diego.
