he told me he was one of the P.B. Weare crowd
- with Charlie Barber and Cranes who came in
to Alaska in 1895 or '6.
Have inquired from every body coming out from
Coldfoot about the situation there, and also from
people here - and have determined not to go any
further in that direction, but to go to Fairbanks
instead. Have just written to McKenzie &
Heilig to that effect.
Waiting for Barnette to come in from
Fairbanks so as to learn conditions there
- hear he is to be in tonight. Will probably
not go in until next mail arrives though.
Long talk with John McCloud - 26 yrs old,
born at Dease Lake, B.C. hunter, trapper
talks 7 different Indian languages -
wants to go to Mt. McKinley with me.
