[Louie Strentzel Muir]
sound rather strenuous and it was rather tough we all felt alright after it and ate a tremendous supper here at Crockers. The only injury that I received from it was a blistered tow, which however is not very painful most of the time we take rather short trips and don't hurry at all We have enjoyed every minute since we started including snow and thunder storms and I havent felt tired or bothered once since I left Merced. I don't believe one could wory if they tried to up here for if things dont go the way you [want?] them to they will go some way that is [just?] as good so whats the difference? [The?] crowd don't know very much about roughing it but are amazingly good natured and helpfull so everything goes beautifully. Robert and I do the packing and the cooking (at present there is a good deal of rivalry as to which of us can make the best bread and I'm afraid that Robert will come out ahead but I can make better pancakes), Helen, Amy and Miss Safford wash dishes and do what ever other work there is around camp, Fred tends to the horses and sadles, and the other two boys bring in wood and water and the last three mentioned also09189
