I have a lower birth so sure enjoying tripe. we past through Medicin Hat at 8 AM this morning, we got off there and had a nice lettle walk around. we past through the Glaciers in the nicest part of day. and last night we past through Field & past the Great divide & about 8 PM there was three & us together in the back & train all the way they let us stay out there because we made friend with some very nice Ladys on the train & they asked us back, there was about ten Ladys from New York that had been down to the fair & was just going home by Canada, & they sure traited us nice. But they got off at Lake Louise & about 11. PM, Last night they gave us there address, & they want us to come & visit them when we come back & just had a lovely time.

Say mother you remember the lettle Girl at the train in pink that cried when I went away she gave me ten boxs & cigarets, I only met her on boat, but she seemed very nice her name is Madiline Musson, and I am going to have her call on you, But I thought it was very nice of her to give me the cigarets
