Journal I : Expedition to Glacier Bay, Alaska, Summer 1890

June 15th

All day thru N. Dakota, the wheat region. The towns are situated on a dead level plane (glacial drift) and are all small. They have mostly sprung up within three or four years, since the advent of the R.R. [Macey?] and therein consist of a station house, an elevat a grain elevator and a few houses. The country is perfect, flat except where the streams are, and [MS illegible] a group of moraine hills are seen. David up late  bed (quite small) am continually [MS illegible].

Towards evening, we passed into Montana and approached the Missouri River. The Drift was left behind and we now found Cretaceous (?) clays. Some Indians were seen.
