Slept till noon today, then about 3
oclock I dressed & went calling - called
on Mrs. Judge Reed first - then on
Mrs. Crane, Mrs Strong & this evening
took dinner with the young men at the
"Pioneer Mining Co" rooms. Present
Daly, Orton, Johnson of Pioneer Co.
their mining foreman, clerk & two expert
employees - both of whom were also
fine musicians & Mrs. M. Kjelsberg.
We had a fine dinner - then cigars &
music, - violin & piano. All except
Daly, Orton & I were foreigners - &
the Russian national anthem, & Swedish
Finnish & German songs were sung.
Mrs. Kjelsberg sang in Russian, Ger
=man & English, & danced like a
ballet girl. We only remained until
8:30 & then went to hotel & after
10 oclock I went to Aarctic Brotherhood
ball & looked on until 12 oclock then
went home. I am tired of society in
Nome, and will not attend any more
public functions & very few private
ones. The town is "dance mad" - but I
have escaped that disease.
