Pitching and rolling just south of
Seymour Narrows which we passed at
breakfast time. We are to go into Lady
-smith for coal - this takes up nearly
or quite 48 hours more time.
Ladysmith. B. C. We anchored in
Ladysmith this morning at 2 p.m. & tonight
we are still loading coal. Birch left
us on the early morning train & went to
Victoria where he will go by boat to Seattle.
Visited the Tyee Copper Co's smelter with the
smelter manager Thos. Kiddie & inspected
the plant and process. Took lunch & dinner
at the "Abbotsford" & Debbie seemed to
enjoy the walk & the balmy weather.
Ladysmith is a very thriving place, with
its railroad, coal bunkers, mines, smelter
