Louie [Wanda Muir]
must not fret. I do not much fear that you will, for you must needs be busy with many things, and with our babe above all. This is a beautiful harbor, white mountains shutting it in all around -- white nearly to the water's edge.
We will probably be here until Saturday next, as we have to take on a hundred tons of coal and some stores, etc.
I will write again ere we leave, and then you will not hear again, probably, until near the middle of June, when we expect to meet the St. Paul belonging to the Alaska Com. Co. at St. Michael. Then I will write and you may receive my letter a month or two later. Goodbye until tomorrow.
