Commentary: “We stayed in this camp four or five days and I made several sketches. I set up my Wabeno and the Indians came and watched me as I worked. One day whilst I was busy sketching some skins and trapping paraphernalia hanging from a rack, a boy managed to squeeze inside.” (trip dairy) See #194 for further commentary.
