Mora discusses the artworks he is working on, including a painting he is doing outdoors; a drawing for a competition sponsored by Ivory soap; and a portrait of a woman named Sonia. He also mentions leisure activities such as swimming and fishing. Includes illustrations of: a group of people swimming and diving off a pier ("large bunch in bathing today"); a self-portrait on the pier, reeling in a fish ("I catch my first good fish"); a clown and a dancer ("Hoag show"); self-portrait with bandaged head ("such a headache"); a group of people in a wagon ("the bunch go fishing"); another fishing self-portrait ("caught a fine bass"); and a woman on horseback ("Sonia rides a new mount"). This is one of 242 monthly pocket diaries in Mora's papers.
