Henry F. Osborn 1896
This is a little fun notebook kept by Dr. Henry F. Osborn on a cruise to Alaska with the naturalist John Muir, in 1896. The notebook includes little stories like this one:
"Ageuttemau (Horsecar designer) of New York came up to him one evening and asked
"how do you get a living wandering about as you do. I don't see how you support yourself."
[John] Muir took these questions very good naturedly but was somewhat mettled came to the
rescue asking the man how he got a living. The next evening the same person whom Muir had nicknamed
the Emphasis from his very elaborate way of telling commonplaces pointed out a 'wee' glacier at the summit
of one the hills in Carroll's inlet and asked about it: "Poor little wee glacier" said Mr Muir "I wonder how it gets its living.""
