Sam Martin 15


The next day he was escorted by train to Lethbridge Province Jail.  He had been on a bread and water diet for 49 days and was very weak.  He was glad to be back at this jail.  He worked outside hoeing sugar beets.  One guard was very mean to him and always put him down because he was so weak and could not keep up with the others.  The work was hard, his hands bleed often because they did not give him gloves to use.
