November 6, 1911

Flo's Diary:

Awakened at 3:30 a.m. by cry of Cordova. Hurrah in Alaska at last! Peek out of window – see clear–frosty stars shining snow on mountains – moon light and all seems beautiful. Stay in bed until 5. get up. Ship deserted all on land get my things ready and bus comes – an auto! Cold but [i]nvigorating. Not light yet. Go to Windsor hotel. Very modern. Have nice room: bed, lounge, mahogany dresser and table and chairs, heated and bath. cost: $1.50. Big fireplace in office. Stay here until Friday. Go to breakfast with Capt. Sleep–read–write. Walk out to see the city. Beautifully located. Rec’d caller. Miss Smith, a teacher. Took bath and to bed. Slept very warm.
