John J. Haun, January 1854

Book No 2
Jan 1854

Wed all dates previous to this are lost by the burning of the cabbin & my trunk
4th still working in the drift all day  came to where the bed rock run up
nearly perpendicular a bad sign for gold  about to give it up & try another
Th place Pa went to the point in the evening to send a letter below no more today
5th we went a little farther into the hill to see the end of it very cold today the
coldest we have had this winter  Dave Willam came over to see me
and took dinner with me  I cut out a pair of gloves after supper  nothing
Fr of particular interest today
6th nothing new today  done no work worth naming today  went to the
hole & found it filled nearly full with water caused from the ditch above we
fished out our tools & came home  cut & carried wood having nothing else to do
done some sewing on my gloves made of flower sacks  very cold today  every
thing froze up  about as cold as it ever gets this far up in the Sierra Nev
Sat ada  nothing more new today I believe
7th nothing new today  very cold today  hardly know what to do  water
