Miles Today – 260.
[I travelled to Vancouver in a sleeper car on CPR’s “The Canadian”]
Left Toronto 5 p:m. Had tremendous supper. Read a bit. Talked to Captain Irvin, friend of Mac McCutcheon, from Port Arthur.
Time: 12:15AM [the 21st]. Been in Sudbury since 11:15 pm. Just leaving now. In bed.
[9:30PM, Mr. Irvin, Captain of the Golden Hind, biggest lake freighter – grain. Salt water ticket too. $1200 month – 3.5 months off a year. Bound for 3 months in Florida. Good friend of the “Mac” McCutcheons.]
Did geometry then went up to observation deck. Saw nothing but rock, rock, rock & snow. Most desolate scenery at night. Train lights make the scene rather queer.
Sudbury was 20 below 0F. We got off, had coffee, went outside. Nostrils froze on inside – very weird.
Now I hit the sack.
