The Mess Tent at Night
This Remington painting appeared in Harper's Monthly, November, 1891, as an illustration for Julian Ralph's story "Dan Dunn's Outfit." Ralph described visiting in British Columbia a camp of men building a railroad, where the mess tent was the principal building. "They ate...with great rapidity, little etiquette, and just enough unselfishness to pass each other the bread."
