Jany 2nd 1902.
Worked in the office all afternoon prepar
-ing opinions in cases submitted. I am
trying to get everything ready - or rather
finished - that is submitted for decision
before I go on my trip to the Straits.
For three days now we have had a storm
in progress but it is raging tonight.
It is coming straight from the north - the air
is filled with snow, which is driven in
rolling, revolving, seething, twisting &
penetrating masses - so dense that
you cannot see 20 yards, so fierce
that you cannot face it, and the drifts
are so high that it is almost impossible
to travel even if the weather permitted it. I
pity any poor fellows out in it tonight.
Such a storm is unknown in the upper
Yukon country - around Eagle, Circle or
Ft. Yukon. We will not attempt to
go on our trip until it abates.
Storm abated - clear - sun shining.
Held court this afternoon - At 3 oclock
attended a dinner party given in the Golden
Gate Hall to the Eskimo by Mrs. Daggett.
