The page for Tuesday May 14th says:
At office 5:45 A.M. Did good work. Rather a preparatory day for my leave taking. Gerald offered a slight but I refused it. No canoes with provisions have come up the river. Mr. Matson is in charge at Boqueron. Only thing to say to-day is so far this month over 21 inches of rain have fallen. Hear desultory news of S.S. Manavi's poor condition. Gang at telephone line commence in the morning. Boy is a great comfort.
