About 40 Eskimo present dressed in skins - furs & native garb. Large & long table spread - cake, coffee-bread &c &c. After a plenteous feast the table was cleared away & we had native songs & dances - also piano-songs & dances by Mrs Daggett & her friends. It is hard to tell who was most delighted - the Eskimo at the whitemans music & dancing or the white people at the Eskimo music & dancing. Photographs were taken at tables & in groups. Each Eskimo also received a parcel of tobacco. Mrs Kjelsberg also gave them a taste of high life with the latest Parisian demi monde dancing - Fathers Van der Pol & Camille were present.
After the Eskimo reception I attended a dinner party at Finks : Mr & Mrs Fink, Miss Margaret Fink & Miss Chisholm: Marshal Richards, Forrest, Judge & Mrs Tom Noyes from Candle Creek - Jack Hines & I constituted the party.
