I am attaching a personal narrative written by D.L. Hoy and originally published in Over the Counter, Occasional Paper no 49, by the Edmonton Hundred Historical Society.
I am grateful for the Society's' permission to reproduce the text and would draw your attention to the reassertion of their copyright to any version of the text.
The Society is currently moving its website and so I am not able to give their url here. However, they are still very much up and running and you can contact them at email@example.com.
