I am forced to leave homebecause my father was doing my job and chopped off his thumb. I signed on to be a voyaguer because my family needs the money. I leave behind my Father,Mother Two sisters and Celeste.
I am homesick. I get along with most of my brigade. Beniot gives me a really hard time.I am very sore my muscles hurt so bad. My hand are raw using blisters that bleed constantly they ooze and my hand are cracked.
Pierre found this portage to be much easier than the first one because his pack was the proper weight. Lalonde got out of the canoe to hold it up because the canoe was stuck on a rock and Mckays canoe was headed tight for them. Lalonde slipped and drowned.
Beloit was tired of the food Bellegarde was cooking. He threw down his plate.Beloit thew a punch at Bellegarde a scoop was thrown. Bellegarde called Beloit a pig. The fig ht continued for while. Lapetite stopped the fight,
Pierre and his crew of voyageurs were happy to be done with this part of the journey. That night there was a great banquet with things like honey glazed ham,smoked trout, venision . Pierres favorite things of the meal were the fresh picked peas and the icy cold milk. Pierre met Mukwa and Mukwas daughter Kennewah and the two of them went blueberry picking together.
Pierre is happy to be home. I think he will sign on again in the spring. I think he will eventually take Mckay's advice and winter with the crew and eventually learn about becoming a clerk at a fort.
