Our new camp is lovely outside of the moving and the general fixing up of the new camp, we have had no hardships whatever. At present the water supply, or rather the lack of it, is our worst trouble. Sometimes the water is shut off for 24 hours at a time. At such times we have to do the best we can, and imagine what we don't get.
I told you last letter about my increased duties at the new camp. Well, I am getting along fine now. Getting up at 6:30 every morning is quite a change for me. However it is just as easy as 7:30. The day we moved I was up at 4:30 A.M. and in the saddle 10 hours, so that the riding I had done in Winnipeg helped me out a lot. The next day the horse was all bandages but I was O.K.
