The page for Saturday, August 31st says:

Go to 6 A.M. Mass. Stay till the 7 A.M.
and offer it for Mr. D.C. Stapleton.
Downey off until 12 Noon.
Going to Quayaquil with two others
on Tuesday next.
Go around town with Nattie.
Martial law and all the places close at 9 p.m.
Mosquitoes bothers one.
Get my whiskers trimmed.
Find an old key.
Lottery drawing 12:30 P.M. tomorrow.
In the Hotel de marina at 8:30 p.m.
Downey still with his acquaintance.
  "    did not come home.
Meet Steward Benson ashore.
