7747 AM.Fort Wrangell - June 5, [1899]How are you all. We arrived here last evening. This is a lovely morning. Water like glass. Looks like home. The flowers are in bloom. So are the forests. We leave in an hour for Juneau. The mountains are pure white. The weather all the way up cool & clear everybody well & happy Went to church yesterday at Metlakhatla, heard Duncan preach & the Indians sing Had fine ramble in the woods with Burroughs. He is ashore looking and listening for birds. The song sparrow a little dun speckledy muggins sings best. Most of the passengers are looking at totem poles. Have letters for me at Seattle. No use trying 02592
