   Took taxi to Cuidad Universtaria, much built up since 1939, and was so greeted by Hernando Garcia and others with the Spanish half-hug and handshakes. Dugand took me home to lunch at [[underlined]] his lovely [[/underlined]] home. Returned to Instituto and worked. As in Caracas, my time is spent about the same way at this Herberium - naming things, checking records, answering questions, etc. Some steel cases, made in Bogota, have recently been installed and in them is the main [[herberium?]] - the named things. In the wooden cases is material to be named or to be mounted.

Transcription Notes:
Name Dugard or Deegaud probably referring to the same person. Does anyone know who it would be? Armando Dugand (July 23, 1906 – 1971) was a Colombian botanist, geobotanist and ornithologist.
