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

June 19th

All these western towns are rivals, and each wants to be larger than the others; hence they are all dissatisfied about the census returns and accuse the enumerators of carelessness in their work. The amount of excitement over this is very strange as one from the East.

Today the weather is clear, but Mt. Tacoma is still hid by clouds. By the aid of Mr. Plumm Plummer, County Surveyor, I have decided to make magnetic observations in the Park in old Tacoma.
