would not call for us until next day. Set our tents at 3 and 4 P.M. Enjoyed the view of the two fine [glaciers] on other side of channel and examining the superb bosses of Cassiope in bloom. The [Indian] visited a camp ground 500 [yards] below ours and returned with a chip, a bone and a few hairs, which he offered as proof that Indians had killed a bear and camped there 8 days ago. We asked him the day we left the ship. At this camp the [Sitka] [spruce] form a [considerable] part of forest with the P hemlock still predominant and taller,-100 [feet]. A fine mill established old, mossy, lichened, and if possible still more superbly embossed with Cassiope, etc. (29) The ship’s whistle awoke us. [Sketch: Highest [glacier] in [Harriman] inlet]
