That would be doing the work, taking in the wood, and taking in water and do? ing work like that, besides working with George, and be? sides doing work in the house. Then we started, after a couple of years, we got on our feet a little more, we lised to have a girl from Ingon? ish come up in the wintertime, when we had the mailmen. And even the Moun? ties --oh, my God. The Moun? ties that were in Ingonish. One time a Mountie came George and Annie MacDermid MacLeod -when I think of what I did to him! He was going by the window in the kitchen. I said, "Where're you going?" He said, "Mr. Burke told me to come here and wait for the other mailman, and leave my horse and sleigh here." I said, "Just wait now." I said, "I'm getting a driver. And you're going up to Alex Morrison's. And he'll bring back the horse and sleigh." The mailman coming at--I don't know--probably early in the afternoon--sitting down till the mailman came, and perhaps the mailman was going to stay all night! I don't think I'd do that to a Mountie today--I'd be glad to have a Mountie on my side. (What did they mean when they said you were Up half the night baking? Do they mean bak? ing for all these people?) Of course!
