knees all the way - and both seemed to
enjoy it! The wife and small son of the
Cook at Pelly crossing also came with
us from that point bound for Dawson.
I am quietly informed that Mrs Stevens is
preparing to leave her husband with one of
the stablemen at this post - I can readily
believe that she would do it. "Stewart crossing"
is 50 miles up Stewart river from the Yukon
- there is a post of the Northwest Mounted Police
here - and a large two story roadhouse.
Beautiful mountain scenery today -
We left Stewarts Crossing at 6 a.m. - and
took dinner at "Wounded Moose" road
house at 12, and reached Indian River
roadhouse at 4 - We then prevailed
on the driver to attempt to make
Dawson - 27 miles farther.
