Dr. Tappey announced that he needed to abandon the expedition in Duluth. The crew joked that his patients were better off without him, but the doctor insisted that he needed to return to work. The expedition was behind schedule, and Dr. Tappey realized he did not have time to get to Isle Royale as originally planned. The Abbie stopped for the night at Dutchman’s Creek, and the men camped overlooking the electric lights of Duluth, dining and playing cards all together one last night. The game, as usual, was Crazy Pedro.
