"Isabelle" came in with about 60 passengers
from the "Cudahy" - who report the "Monarch"
but twelve hours behind. Most of the people
seem to be coming to this town - & include
miners, - but principally storekeepers, machinery
men &c. "Isabelle" left for "Cudahy" again
this evening having in town a barge for freight.
-May 30th (Decoration day).
Telegram this forenoon from Abe Spring who
went down with "Isabelle" saying that the
"Monarch" is at mouth of Chena, & the "Isabelle"
is taking her freight & passengers & both will
come up to Fairbanks today.
A very blue day, yesterday and today,
for many - as the river is so low that the
boats cannot get up to Fairbanks
and our Chena friends are knocking
this town effectively on account of it.
