The page for Monday, September 2nd says:
At 6 A.M. Mass. Rainbow at 6:45 A. M. Visit market. Chinese principally butchers. Go and see Mr. Diez at 7:30 A.M. He is to call on me at 1 p.m. to arrange fares. People are very thin in Panama, hawk and spit much. Obesity or elephantiasis is the other extreme. Turkey Buzzards and Pelicans very tame. Meet Morrissey again. He is going to confession today. Belongs in Colorado - has 5 brothers. Pat Walsh has 13 children in same town. Much trouble about passports.

Questions and comments:
- I don’t remember Pat Walsh being mentioned before.
- Nathaniel spelled it ‘elephantisis’; I corrected the spelling.
- I wonder what the trouble was with the passports. Nathaniel’s is quite new; he received it in January of this year (1901).
