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

Archive for December, 2011

… and that’s the end.

After October 9th, all the pages in the diary are blank.

We know that there was a lot going on in Nathaniel’s life; he got married to Anna Lauterbach in early November 1901, and they moved to San Diego soon afterwards (date?) – but he didn’t record any of that in his diary.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this diary – I know I have.

Questions and comments:

  • I’m getting the feeling that Nathaniel is just going through the motions now – both for his job at Playa de Oro, and with the diary.
