Early Mass at Cathedral at Panama. 9 A.M. Pontifical Mass at Augustine Church. Bishop from Bogota. At elevation of Host military orders given, band plays, flag of Colombia is waved. altogether an impressive scene. One inclined to beat time instead of mea culpa. Children of Mary looked virginal in white. Paid my debt of gratitude to out Blessed Lady in answer to my prayer for speedy relief to Nattie's fever, last March. At 1 p.m. go to (Plaza) Cathedral Park to see lottery drawing. Crowds around. Chinamen, Africans, and the poor mostly. Day is rather hot. Hunt up Downey. Asleep. Mr. Diez sends for board bill.
