He writes "I am now on the most dangerous duty chopping wood with another, five miles from the Fort. Of course we carry our rifles revolvers chuck full, but we are just as liable to be shot in the back, as poor Graham was. If you know the boy's people you can tell them that every man here longs to avenge him - and aim to on the first opportunity..." he goes on "I want to get out of this Fort, for in plain English it is the damndest fraud ever perpetrated on the people of Canada...".
