A handwritten letter from Roger Pocok in [Prince Albert] to his mother in Ontario. Roger writes about new NWMP recruits, and changes of command within the NWMP. The letter is written in two parts, and the second part of the letter is dated September 15th, but may have actually been written October 15th. Roger talks about his inability, for a variety of reasons, to come home to Ontario to be nursed for the winter. He also describes some of the crime in the community and problems with some of the members of the Force. 8 pp
