only as far as Skeleton R and return. I took a walk to the West
a short distance and killed an old squaw duck and two Brat

Awakened at 3 A.M. by the dogs. Rushed out and and saw a
bear on the beach about 100 yds. East of camp slowly
walking towards the water. One shot. A large male and
very fat. Shot them both shoulders. Skinned him and
covered the meat with a tarpaulin to keep sea-gulls
from stealing. I still have a rather sore hip I left
the meat at the place the bear was killed and will wait

great many geese were heard flying East but was
unable to see them through fog. Foggy all day. Rain,
hail and snow. Walrus could be heard to the West.
