March 29, 1885 - In Toronto staying with Nellie and Artie. Going back to the North West on Tuesday via the States. Trouble commenced with Riel. A rebellion breaking out throughout the North West. Queen's Own and Grenadiers ordered out. Drove to Armories with Artie in his dog cart to witness the preparations. Wished myself going with them. Home again at 6. The soldiers will start west tomorrow.
