James Haun diary, Book 1, September 6 1853 – September 13 1853
Tuesday 6 – Our new diggings turns out poorly. Dobson and myself prospected another gulch and got from 24 cents to $5 per pan.
Wednesday 7 – A good prospect in another place of the same gulch. This afternoon all hands went to the state election except John, and voted the Democratic ticket for governor John Bigler.
