The page for Thursday May 16th says:
At office 6 A.M. Nattie's birthday - 16 years of age. Make him a present. Delighted. 4 canoes arrive. System all awry. Gerald running things. Tell's the canoe-men of Borbon just what he thinks - flashes a $50 bill. They are children - laugh and try to be serious. Very busy keeping things straight. Boy off for a camp. Enjoyed himself thoroughly. A most gloriously beautiful sunset. Prayers and thankful for the day being past.

Questions and comments:
- Nathaniel wrote “agog”, crossed it out, and substituted “awry”.
- What happened to D.C. Stapleton arriving (and Nathaniel leaving)?
- “Thankful for the day being past” sounds like something monumental has occurred, but what?
