A visit from Mr. Pringle and his assistant. Take train on Mex. Cent. Ry. to Valley where we arrive about 8:30 P.M. Found no transportation at train and were obliged to walk over to town situated about 3/4 of a mi. south of the station. Valles is a small town but is the head of a district.

Apr. 28.

Remain at Valles and arrange for outfit for Julieta trip.

A heavy storm came up this afternoon and just before it struck the town I saw a flock of about 50 of those crows as they flew away. They fly very unsteadily, pitching first one direction then in another and all of them 'cawing' while on the wing. The [[strikethrough]] not [[/strikethrough]] note of this bird is quite different from that of C. mexicanus from the west coast. That of C. mex. being pitched in a much higher key.

Apr. 29. Santa Cruz. Left Valles this morning and travelled about 11 leagues in a southerly direction to little village of Santa Cruz.

Road. Led today through country nearly level in character and quite similar to that about Valles.

Apr. 30. Huehuetlan F.G.P.
Made about 7½ leagues today
