Dawson City, Alaska
August 4, 1898

I am still with Con and the bakery is doing a very good business....I do not intend to go prospecting while I have steady work....As I told you in recent letters there are many disgusted people here, many who wish they had never heard of Klondike and there are others who say the country is all right. There is no doubt the country is over done and people are leaving by the hundreds and still there are plenty left....
