June 16 Steamer [ ?ion] down
from Dawson. Mrs. Capt. Wright on board
bound for Ft. Gibbon. Mrs. Reynoldson & son
(Depty. Marshals wife) from Dubuque, Iowa
arrived; Reynoldson at Rampart after
prisoners. Am all ready to go hunting
mountain sheep. George Jeffery is going
with me. Torrance takes our packs
on his mules as far as Colorado Creek,
we then go on up Mission to No. 28.
where Harry Alldis is working our claims
& from that point George Dribelbis tells
me it is less than half a days walk
to the summits and sheep pastures.
Reports all confirm Noyes suspension
and my transfer to Nome, - well I
must hunt and play now, for that means
very hard, - hard work, but I am
ready and prepared for it.
Left Eagle at 3 oclock afoot and reached
Torrances mining camp at 6:00 for supper
