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

July 30th

The rain continues all day, and so does work on the chimney, which is now about four feet high. I [took?] two pictures (photos) of "the rain gauge at work". The rainy weather seems to increase the discharge from the glacier; many large bergs have fallen in the last few days, and the inlet is very full of ice.

York leaves us as soon as the Elder arrives. He evidently came up with the expectation of prospecting and being disappointed in that, he wants to leave us. It is likely the Prof. Muir will hire him to take him about the Bay in a canoe.
