|Edwin B. Sherzer to Clara M. Miller discussing the state of mining in the area, new stampedes and the behavior of a "native" acquaintance
|07 March 1902
|Sherzer, Edwin B. (fl. 1900-1902)
|Miller, Clara M.
|Longs for the days when they can speak in person and not by letter. Townspeople are readying accommodation for the summer crowd. Discusses the state of mining - "The strikes up on Candle Creek are beginning to get a black eye and people are not taking much interest in them anymore" - and new stampedes to different places. Mentions meeting an "native" acquaintance who shakes his hand, and pats his shoulder and acts like a "pleased child". "They are a very simple people and if treated right, will do anything for you."
