Sept. 1st Sunday
The coming of the Manning last night
with Dist. Atty. and witnesses makes it possible
to go ahead with Hardy case tomorrow.
I left Unalaska this morning at 10 oclock &
climbed the mountain on the east side of the harbor
(about 2000 ft height) found that on Aug 24, two men
had preceded me and left a staff upon which they
had written "We, J. A. Ellis and William Sowerby [?]
have agreed to call this peak Wickersham Peak -
[?] govern yourself according - Aug 24, 1901."
Saw two red foxes on top - one sat and barked at
me until I was within 100 yards - when he ran.
Went inland and S. E. and climbed high peaks
between Unalaska and Biorka harbor - spent
the afternoon gazing out across the blue Pacific
[fro]m the highest points - 2500 ft. Read an interesting
[nov]el "The Master of the Mine" by Buchanan. Saw
[an]other red fox and got within 50 ft. - above him
[?] a ledge. He lay curled up in the sunshine
