-March 23 - continued.
Eagle City is no longer attractive to me. It seems
as if I must see Howard in his accustomed places
and it makes me sad and lonesome. I will be
glad to get away for Fairbanks. Barnette
& Manley, from Fairbanks, are going in with
horses and ask me to go with them.
Tried jury case yesterday & discharged
jury - tried customs case today before
the court - forfeited the goods. Called
on Capt. Perkins, Dr. Clayton & Capt.
Nesmith, & attended Minstrels.
Left Eagle City - am to travel with Manley
& Capt. Barnette - put my packs on sled & walked
on - reached Stam [previous word struck through] 70 Mile at 1:30 & had lunch
& reached Sheep Creek at 5. Feet badly
