McCord’s Ranch – A Chronicle of Sounding Lake, Pt. 2
By Margaret V. Watt, 748 – East 60th Ave., Vancouver, B.C.

But little of the enormous quantity of hay put up during the long summer months against approaching winter had been consumed.

Hard work had been rewarded with satisfying material progress. The future was bright with promise.’
