The story of Nathaniel McHorney's 1901 trip to Ecuador.

August 13th, 1901

The page for Tuesday, August 13th says:

Reached Bourbon 8 p.m. Campo had no money -
Came to Limones with me to secure same.
Remained there 2 1/2 days and then left us.
We stand until Saturday A. M.

Cashed a $500 draft -
Belisario Estarfrian - send books.

Things looks bad - Sell "Boy's" gun
for $20 - feel better.

Playadorians cry at my leaving.
Give a gun salute in leaving.

Questions and comments:

  • Limones is also known today as “Valdéz”, and is on the Pacific coast.
  • As you go downriver from Playa de Oro, you reach Concepcion, then Bourbon, and then Limones/Valdéz.
  • “Belisario Estarfrian” (sp?) – I can’t find a reference to that.
