The day broke clear and calm, and the Abbie continued its journey. At 11 AM the ship reached the Presque Isle River. Howard Longyear and Dr. Tappey wanted to try the fishing. J.M. Longyear and E.W. Sparrow took pictures. Mr. Clark brought along an ax to clear brush, and Mox carried J.M. Longyear’s large-format 5x8 camera. They found a 30-foot tall waterfall.
Their trip soon resumed. At about 4 PM the Abbie pushed into the Black River. The crew encountered two companies of French-Canadian fishermen, who vocally admired the Abbie. One of these fishermen told the Marquette ship’s crew how he narrowly escaped the storm two days before. The Abbie men slept in their tent, bundling up against the unseasonably cold night, the winds smelling of fish. J.M. Longyear was embarrassed to find he had accidentally packed a child’s nightgown in his luggage. He borrowed a sweater.
