There was a period, while I was working, during which people started to die from coughing and catching colds, which began happening in the summertime. Nobody [in Pangnirtung] knew, until this man came back on his way out to a camp, who had this disease, having caught it through a cold and eventually died. And after that, many people died, and that is when I really worked hard for the doctor, so that I was losing sleep, which was during the fall. And because the tides determined how early or late we could leave, and because I had to feed all the sick patients, I had to work very hard.
