my cabin, my Va friend had
been to see me as his card plain
ly indicated that was pind to
my cabin door. All right Mr.
Small, I cant visit you this eve
ning its too unlikely over head.
Th 10 Raind all last knight very light
& clowdy all this day. We got gold 21$–
The other three partners came home
at noon. They say they have found
good diggings over at the American
Vally. There is not telling.
Fr. 11 Up before day. From 1 to 2 hours &
have a good pine & oaks fore to sit by
& not the slightest sound of animal
or beast to interrupt my reflections
except an occational twist od grunt
from John as a part is on the bed
& the balance on the floor.
I often think & sometimes speak
of it to John, that I would not
be surprisd to see you out here at
any time but maybe. I wish it
so, we got gold 11$. & I concluded
weve made but little of late to
take rest tomorrow, as Ive not
lost a day willingly since I beg
an to work in the mines.
St. 12 John myself & G. Kline
took a walk up into the
mountains, the weather was delight
tfull. We stood upon one of those
bald peaks, north of the volcan
ick slate mountain on Feather
river. We could see a great way
nearly all around us. The are
was cool up there & concluded
to retrace our steps to the cabins.
