[[underline]] 5. Journal. [[/underline]]
Near Denver a fine old golden eagle sat on the snow fence & quietly watched the train go by.

Reached Denver at 1 P.M. an hour & a half late, train doesn't leave till 6:10.  Spent several hours trying to find Mr. Woodard, Game Warden, & his attorney Mr. Sackett, [[strikethrough]] but [[/strikethrough]] only & find they were both out of town for several days.

Was tired & wet from tramping in the snow & snow drifting inside of my clothes so went back to depot & waited for train.  Heard a flock of evening grosbeaks near the capitol, saw lots of Otoeoris & english sparrows in town.

Still snowing & blowing when I left Denver at dark
