A most miserable day. Snowing thickly and for a
few hours the snow was a couple of inches deep on the
ground. Before the snow we had a heavy fall of rain
making it necessary to put on two tarpaulins over the
large tent. A young fox came into camp and nearly set
the dogs crazy by going near them. In facl fact the dog
line came loose once. We tried all the ways to chase the fox
away but he would not leave so Crawford had to shoot
it. Variable breezes.
