[2]Alaska is having quite a popularity and prominence in Washington just now. Capt. Carroll has arrived, as full of original salt and sin as ever. His "Heave Ho!" laugh is as resounding as in his political district and his complexion the same fast and unfading dye. His experiences here and his opinions of ways and people of Washington are most amusing. Prof. Reid was in the city this week at the meeting of the Geologic Assocation[3]and his photographs of the Muir Glacier, of Mr. Muir, the cabin, the chimney, etc. were shone by lantern slides at the same time with Mr. Russell's St. Elias [illegible]. Capt. Hooper and the Corwin are still at Port Townsend and quite likely to remain there they fear. Mrs. Hooper and the children are at 1169 [illegible] St. Oakland and were quite in dispair when they last wrote, at not having Capt. Hooper with them for the holidays. I am so glad to learn 01483
