[Sun. May 25, 1902] Yesterday, one year ago, the "Jeanie" - the first vessel of the year reached Nome. There is yet no prospect of a steamer. The ice is so thick & such floating fields are in sight that no vessel can get here - It may be days yet- Went duck hunting this morning at 3 p.m. - back at 8 - no luck but snipe and one brant.
[Monday 26] In a talk with Lawrence, who was bailiff at the last term of court I asked him about acting the next term & he said he did not know whether he would or not - that the Marshal - meaning Richards - had asked him to go on the jury!! Evidently packing it in anticipation of trouble. Tried case of Foss v. Daw decided for the defendant.
