However I am now back at duty & feel I must do my duty to common decency in replying to your last. Let me first befor I forget it ask you to see Lem Ford & see if he can send me 1 or 2 of those little forest Dept. Wet stones. They are very useful & by far the most suitable to be got for our use. Since I got your letter I saw a lot of the Cariboo Boys in the 67th I got a day off & went off purposely to see my old Co. I got a kind welcome from all I met in fact nearly all the Co, both Cariboo men & others knew me & it was a very pleasant hour or two I was with them. I did not see Scotty but was very pleased to hear he had been recomended for honours (since got the D.S.O.) what he did was splendid I am told & he has I have several times heard always tried to do his bit, no shirker about Scotty. I am tickled to death that he has won out. Too bad that a fine spokun young man like Boyd gets killed off
