Roger is uncertain about whether he will be able to remain with the NWMP, and discusses possible future options, including returning home for a visit. He continues the letter over a period of days, and describes for his mother porblems with drunkeness in the Force, and related discipline problems. He also discusses the suicide of a Sioux prisoner in their Fort. 13 pp.
