Historical noteCompiled by David Ross, Military Curator, Prairie and Northern Region, Department of the Environment, December 1986. The original handwritten journal was donated to Parks Canada, Fort Battleford National Historic Park by Mr. & Mrs. F. A. Lindsay of Ottawa, 27 April 1970. It is probable that this is the Fort Pitt NWMP Post Journal rather than Dickens' personal journal.
