Arose at 7. After breakfast, took a walk over to the Potlatch Hotel & photo-ed it & an old indian dugout. Then went up in the oat field & staid with Anton. Took dinner at his home in company with Aunt Kate Monroe, his mother. Aunt Juliet gave me a quilt which she made herelf in the course of 2 yrs., no two pieces alike & containing 999 squares.

Left La Conner on stage with Mr. Izett for Mt. Vernon. Mr. Hoar & I took in the sights there until train time. Left for Van Couver at 11.28 & reached there at 4.30. Bought some souvenirs & looked around till 5.30. Lord Minty, Gov. Gen. of Canada is on the train making a farewell tour. All turned out to see him in company with the militia. Van Couver is fine. Street cars keep to the left. Street paved with wood blocks & and side walks are of plank. Saw heaps of China men & a few Indians. All the military men carry canes & most of the Englishmen.
