& cheerful as ever & a most indefatigable collector of plants. Sargent can now walk pretty well & he does not limp.I telegraphed to Port Townsend to find out whither we can get berths on any of the steamers for both Canby & Sargent seem determined to go if they can comfortably about the 17th or 20thA gentleman & wife who have just returned from Alaska say that the crowd was so great there was no pleasure in it.We came down from Banff to Laggan this morning & will stay here at the lake until the day after tomorrow then we will perhaps stay a day or two at Donald & other points I think that if you write as soon as you receive this to Victoria I would get it before going to Alaska,Later Port Townsend to be held till called for.Ill telegraph later after I know definitely what we are going to do.
