    Excerpt from The Mountie and the Sourdough All around the Bay District new outfitting stores had opened up stocked with warm blankets, socks and cold weather clothing; sleds and whipsaws; hammers, nails, sails and rope; pots, kettles and pans; warm caps and high-topped shoes; maps of the Yukon, etc. Frank N. Smith of Oakland and I had been getting ready for a long time to make the trip into the far away North by way of the Chilkoot Pass Route to Dawson. We both had lived in Oakland for many years and took plenty of time to get a splendid outfit. Every evening found us climbing the trails over the hills back of Oakland, hardening the muscles and getting in the very best of physical condition for our coming trip. We were in splendid health, and now fully prepared and equipped with everything required for our undertaking. So when the beautiful little steamer Walla-Walla pulled away from San Francisco on March 17, 1898, Frank and I were aboard with all our belongings and on our way to the frozen northland. (It was Saint Patrick's Day and I have often thought with wonder how our safety was in a protecting hand.) As the steamer Walla-Walla was taking care of the transportation for passengers going East over the Canadian Railroad, all passengers bound for the Klondike and Alaska were transferred to the larger steamer Queen at Seattle. This necessitated our stopping at Victoria to obtain our miner's licenses. While passing Cape Flattery the little steamer on her run between San Francisco and Seattle ran into some rough going and all the passengers except a few including Frank and myself, became seasick. Our room, which was the best on the ship, became a gathering spot for the able. There was a young lady on board on her way home to Tacoma. She played and sang well, so we had a concert the last two nights in the saloon cabin. The captain, Mr. Thomas, had been very kind to us and solicitous for our welfare. My darky songs seemed to tickle him to death and he called me Alex. He arranged it so we would have no trouble getting our baggage transferred to the steamer Queen at Seattle. The steamer Queen stopped at Victoria, B. C., and while there Frank and I went on a long walk. Victoria looked like a sleepy city. It did not wake up until nine o'clock in the morning. Even the electric cars didn't commence to run until that time. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
