From the journal of Lt. John Le Couteur, D.E. Graves. Carlton University Press, Ottawa, Ontario. 1993. p. 218.
Sunday 25th, Xmas Day. Wrote a long letter to my dear Grandfather in pursuance of a time-honoured custom of my younger days. Freezing very hard, obliged to parade in our Ear Caps, the river is nearly frozen over. I was invited to join Mrs. Robison's family dinner, which I greatly enjoyed with the dear family. Sweet little Martha coaxed me to know whether I would stand Godfather to the little baby, to be called Mary, a named doubly dear to me being my own beloved Mothers."
