Letter to Angus McKay from G.S. Davison:
Letter reading "Hudson's Bay Company's Office, Reference No._ Private, Prince Albert 26th Feb 1886 Saskatchewan. My dear Angus, Your letters of Jan 29th and 13th [?] reached me lasting evg. I am glad to hear [?] Stanley had got back so soon, and that you will make him work. There is a big lot of work here still, and since the Gov went away I have my hands full all the time. We have had very gay times during the past week. Tuesday the Citizens gave a Banquet to Mr Clarke in the Club. There was a fine lot of men there, and everything passed off so well the Gov made a capital speeck and was applauded to the roof poor Parker got very tight and fell off the steps. We had an awful time getting him home bot he and Giveen[?] sang songs for the party there was plenty of Grog. Wednesday night there was a party at the Stewarts (they have moved into their new house near Tom's) we had lots of dancing and a grand supper everyone was pleased with the affair. Thursday the Band had a Concert in the Theatre hall the place was crowded to the doors, and was a success. Friday Big Party at Flett's[?] given by the [?] we all went up but did not have much of a time as the place was crowded our dear friend Willie Taylor was there, and show like [?] a Cowel there were very little Grog, we all went home early no on the worse of wear. Saturday, Tom gave a dinner to the Curling Club, and a queer mob they are they had the dinner in the Club the dinner was the result of a match in which Tom was the loser. We have a very Golly evening I was at Clarke's as usual on Sunday the house seemed dull without the Governor and Mrs. Florence. I hope you will be able to send us your Transfers soon as I am in hopes of getting away when Mr Clarke gets back from the East. I have applied for 6 weeks leave. I will attend to your request about Mr Leunaus[?] books. With kind regards, Yours faithfully, G.S. Davison"
