In The Evening, There Being No Tripe De Roche We Were Compelled To Satisfy, Or Rather Allay, The Cravings Of Hunger By Eating A Gun Cover And A Pair Of Old Shoes; At This Time I Had Scarcely Strength To Get On My Legs.

The wind did not in the least abate during the night but in the morning of the 9th it changed to north-east and became moderate.

We took advantage of this circumstance and, rising with great difficulty, set out, though had it not been for the hope of reaching the house I am certain, from the excessive faintness which almost overpowered me, that I must have remained where I was. We passed the Slave Rock and, making frequent halts, arrived within a short distance of Fort Enterprise, but as we perceived neither any marks of Indians nor even of animals, the men began absolutely to despair, on a nearer approach however the tracks of large herds of deer which had only passed a few hours tended a little to revive their spirits, and shortly after we crossed the ruinous threshold of the long-sought spot, but what was our surprise, what our sensations, at beholding everything in the most desolate and neglected state; the doors and windows of that room in which we expected to find provision had been thrown down and the wild animals of the woods had resorted there as to a place of shelter and retreat.
