Dear Friends

We (the hunters) are all home home and well and are much please better for it.  Our game came through in good condition with out any injury to it.  They all say Fan is the bully dog.  Reed is very happy glad we got hone when we did as I was much wanted here but hated to leave when I did.  Hoping this finds you all well.  I will bid you good bye for this time.

Your friend
M. M. Spangler

P.S. I forgot to pay you for keeping but will make all right next year.


The above is a transcription of a letter written to Mr. & Mrs. Bamfield by one of the hunters that boarded with them.  The Bamfield Half Way House and Farm are now located below the flood waters of Alcona Dam.  Reed’s Point, located in Alcona Park was named for the Mr. Reed referred to in the above letter.  Mr. Reed owned much of the land that is now under Alcona Pond.
