The islands themselves could not be seen above the waves but the tops of the trees appearing above the water indicated where the islands were located. Supper or Dinner, (I hardly know which is the proper term for second class) was not bad at all. In fact I'd say fully equal to the average meal except for the service and style.

For quite a while this morning the heavy mist continued to hang low over the waters of the bay, effectively hiding most of the trees and hills of the nearby islands; but the rain, for a wonder, had ceased. Later in the forenoon these peculiar clouds began to break away a little and I had my first glimpse of the sun since leaving Vancouver. However the long narrow bands of clouds still continued to hang from the trees and hills and the sun has been visible for only a few minutes at a time, but Mr. and Mrs. Frank Williams of Rigdon were guests of Mr. and Mrs. R.

We had an hour and a half at Wrangell due to the fact that we could not pass through the Wrangell Narrows until the tide began to come in. It was nearly low tide when we docked at Wrangell, and the hour and a half we spent there was surely an interesting one. This is the first place, and so far the only place, where I have set foot on Alaskan soil, the Alaska of Totem Poles of which I have read and heard so much, and always longied to visit. Wrangell is very quaintly built along the one plank street. This street is just the proper width to allow one vehicle to pass along between the buildings. Those stores and shacks on the ocean side of the street are built on tall piles to keep them out of the water at high tide. The better buildings and curio shops on the other side are built up along the side of the hill. Here at this old place are many quaint and interesting but I should say ugly or hideous totem poles. First of all I visited these for to me they were of chief interest. I found some eight or ten in or near the town. It certainly is quite fascinating to try to figure what the Indians meant by those elaborate and ludicrous carvings, and it becomes all the more interesting when one understands that these served somewhat as did a coat of arms among) Europeans. Many of the animals and birds represented in the carvings could be recognized. These poles have evidently been carved from quite large trees. However they are quite old and many of them would have fallen over from decay long since had they not been braced. Many are overgrown with moss. In one place this made a large bear carved at the top of a tall pole, oddly enough, seem to have a coat of fur. From the Totem Poles I wandered on out a beautiful quiet path through the dense undergrowth to the grave of old Chief Shakes. He was one of The family of Rev. F. R.

'97 so I passed a very interesting evening talking with them, or more correctly listening to their most interesting interests that would be hard to imagine unless one has actually been in Prince Rupert and seen the sun come out agtain after days of mist and rain.

About one o'clock this morning we arrived in Ketchikan, Alaska, our first port of call ai.d were routed out for Immigration Inspection. Of course this proceedure didn't meet with my approval for being wakened up and required to dress and come on deck at that hour is not exactly a desirable experience. To me, sleepy as I was, it seemed like a lot of needless red tape. It might be all right for foreigners but I hardly consider myself a foreigner. We second class ney. Campbell is The mother of L.

Then finding! as I had expected that absolutely everything first class was taken, I decided to go second class rather than wait around several days for the next boat. I have assurance of first class on the return. Second class may not be so pleasant as first but anyway it will be a different and interesting experience for a few days, so for that reason I expect to enjoy the diversion. We are not to leave until 4:30 so I found entertainment in watching the operations on a number of fishing schooners just arrived. Each one was loaded down with its cargo of smelly fish.

Not far across the little dry bay on a small headland I found the remains of the old Russian fort and the burial grounds. Only a part of the stockade and a few of the old timbers remain to mark the site of this historic old fort. On a sort of house boat moored to the shore is located an interesting "shrimp factory." Here Indian men, women and children as well as Chinese and whites of various nationalities work at "hulling" the shrimp which have been brought in by the fishing boats and cooked the previous day.

Instead of routing out the first class passengers the officials went around to their rooms for the inspection. I was too sleepy to enjoy even the novelty of the event so turned in again at my first opportunity, as I'll get to see Ketchikan on the return trip.
