Postcard messageMay 23rd Here I am in Saskatoon, putting in 6 hrs between trains, with an hour in the Library in a sunny reading room. It is a fine City but dreadfully dry + dusty + windy. Was in Regina all yesterday + had a nice time with my nephew, but Regina seems to be in the Sahara + a garden is a luxury and a work of art. Passing through the country this morning the air was dark with dust blowing [?] is quite cheerful. There was a [?] last night. Best regards. M.B.
