History: Russell’s Great Gift of Humor
By WM. Bleasdell Cameron, Meadow Lake, Sask.
‘After running into Charlie Russell on a Winnipeg streetcar in 1913, I did not see him again, I believe until about 1920 when I journeyed west. Highlight of the trip – in fact the only thing I remember about it – was making a stop to which I had been looking forward with keen anticipation; namely, dropping off for a visit with the friend for whom I had come to have sincere regard and the warmest admiration.’
