Went out 3 miles on the ice
this forenoon to the drift ice.
Current toward the north at
the rate of one miles in 2 hours
measured by watch & walking.
Current filled to the brim with
ice - broken - floes & slush
Grand & magnificent stream
of ice flowing northward.
Spent the evening with Ok-ba-ok
writing a vocabulary.
Spent day writing notes & in
afternoon went to Indian church.
Went to afternoon church service
with Mr. Lopp. Eskimo girl played
the organ, and the natives sang without
hesitancy both religious and national
songs - I spoke to them for half
an hour on the laws of Alaska
- a native offered prayer. It
was a strange meeting here on
the westernmost point of the
American continent. Mr Lopp
acted as interpreter for me & also
made a speech to them
