The page for Sunday, August 25th says:
Somewhere near Buenaventura. See shore. Come to a stop at 8 a.m. pumping the water from hull. Day is cool and water calm. Some machinery is broken. First: Steering gear shifts. 2d: Bilge pumps working good. Just learn that to-day is Monday - turn over a page. Made mistake of one day in Esmeraldas.

Questions and comments:
- Buenaventura is a port city in Columbia, about 250 miles northwest of Esmeraldas (direct; the boat passage is longer than that)
