Historique de la conservation

Portée et contenu

A handwritten letter from R.P. to his sister Ethel. Roger talks about a memorial service being held in honour of the anniversary of the Duck Lake Fight as well as a sermon held on the anniversary of the 'panic'. Roger talks of the mail he received, including a revolver; he then goes on to describe the revolver and includes a sketch of it. He also discusses the watercolour paintings he has been working on. Lastly he talks of a new order from his commanding officer that "any man found wearing any article of civilian clothing" has to pay a fine of two dollars. Roger implies that this will lead to a mutiny if enforced.
