April 13 - Self slept in baggage car, did not get much sleep; the baggage guards kept on talking all night. Passed Port Arthur during night. On the train all day flying along towards Winnipeg. Stopped at Rat Portage late in the evening 10 minutes. All the town turned out to see us passing through. Gave us mighty cheers as we were leaving.
