The page for Monday May 13th says:
At office 5:30 A.M. Did a very good days work and feel particularly good all day. Pleasant dreams of Anna early this A.M. Gerald and Mr. Albert Matson off to Quas- amambi. Have to admit it now: Gerald evidently gunning for my scalp. Well, when D.C. Stapleton arrives on Wednesday, I am willing to go without any quarreling. Boy noticed it as very patent at supper to-night. Out Blessed Lady will succor me when necessary. Fancy it will be Downey's turn next. Broke men are what is wanted here. I know D.C. Stapleton will be fair with me. Boy and I decide to steerage it to San Diego to save the money. We are happy in the thought of leaving here this month. I am learning my needed lesson of humility. Thank God for the grace of the vision of it. In 6 weeks I hope to be in Dulzura.

Questions and comments:
- I think it is safe to say that Nathaniel has given up on this job.
- The word “patent” seems wrong to me.
