The photograph above shows Marshall and Louis Bond's cabin in Dawson City. Jack's [London] tent was pitched next to this cabin during his short stay there. The Bond's dog Jack, who became "Buck" of "Call of the Wild" is at the left.
On Facebook, I met Richard Bond who wrote,
I understand my grandfather occasionally encountered your great grandfather [Jefferson Randolph Smith II] around Denver where we owned a ranch from 1872 to 1891 but they were not close.After reading that the Bond's were also in Dawson I wonder if they ran into Soapy on there way into and out of Dawson as well?
