The ship cruised past the spruce and tamarack swamp near the Bad River, and across Chequamegon Bay, where high waves threatened the voyage. Around 3 PM the Abbie stopped at Bayfield to resupply. A store clerk gifted the crew fresh lettuce, and after only canned food, it was gladly received. They continued, stopping for dinner at Red Cliff Bay. At sunset a man stopped by and offered to sell the crew trout. E.W. Sparrow refused, saying they had plenty of beef to eat. When the would-be vendor left, Sparrow banged his fist on the table, proclaiming that he would rather starve than buy trout on a fishing trip.
