Fair enough, I installed the attached.

Ahllund writes of work in Sitka: "... one cannot claim that there was an 
excess of work, because there were so many days off every once in a 
while." For overtime pay, workers received 1/5 of a bottle of spirits 
per hour.

For what it's worth, Ahllund did not like the American takeover. He 
writes, "lots of people belonging to the scum of the society had arrived 
together with the new colonists, and they were walking around 
unemployed, with revolver pistols in their pockets. If there was any 
argument between them and other people, or if they knew that someone had 
some money on them, one two, three, they went - and bang!" Although he 
had intended to stay in Sitka after the American takeover because the 
pay was good, the violence soon convinced him to depart via Russian frigate.
