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

July 8th

Morse, Adams, and McBride crossed the inlet today and took angles with [the?] too small transits from stations, A, B and AB. Cushing and Casement went up to remove the extra flags from nei[g]hborhood of station E. I remained in camp to make meteorological observations. I put the Gurley transit in adjustment and measured angles from the camp. The cold wind from the Glacier seems to make the camp colder than higher up on the mountains. Cushing and Casement found a nice little warm lake and had a swim 1200 ft up.
