[[in margin]] See Oct 1. below [[\in margin]]

[[red underline]] About noon we left [[\red underline]] for [[red underline]] ocean [[\red underline]] by [[red underline]] Sandy Hook. [[\red underline]]
Fresh breeze aft.  [[red underline]] George Roll [[\red underline]] seems entirely recovered from his seasickness and seems to enjoy the trip.  Went near light-ship then back against stiff breeze.  Dropped anchor before Raritan Yacht Club about 5P.M.  Beautiful sunset.  Felt rather tired went to bed at 8.

[[red underline]] new orders on hand.  I begin to realize more and more that May, Rossi and Swan in recommending purchase of Dane Mfg Co. showed very poor judgement and superficial acquaintance with [[\red underline]] situation. 
[[in margin two red exclamation marks]]
This will be a [[red underline]] lesson for the future if [[\red underline]] they recommend anything new not to take matters too much for granted.  I also find that [[red underline]] new boiler is not necessary altho' May [[\red underline]] and Burroughs recommended new boiler.  Took a few sandwiches at plant then went to factory of Burroughs, there met [[red underline]] Dr. Neville Monroe Hopkins [[\red underline]] in quest of information about Bakelite [[red underline]] for Union Carbide Co, [[\red underline]] also Gordon who was there on business.  
Drove back about 4P.M
