1. Gaps appear among the final days recorded in JQA's second Diary booklet. There were no entries for 21–22 Jan., on which days the party was en route from Bilbao to Bayonne; for 24 Jan., the day they spent in that French provincial town; and 26–28 Jan., while traveling to Bordeaux. Some details of this part of their trip are provided in JA's Diary and Autobiography, 4:238–239, and in Dana's Journal.
