Language and script note

Historical Language Note: The annotation on photograph verso states "Jack just back after siwash nite on Bobtail". 'Siwash' is a Chinook jargon term which can mean camping without a tent (bivouac) or camping "the way the native peoples do". Modern use of this term may be considered racist or derogatory within some contexts. Please see our Statement on Language in Archival Descriptions for more on on how we are working to address problematic issues in the archival record in a way that balances with our modern context.
