Initially, I wanted to display all the quartz seam samples so you could easily see the jumbled crystal growth between the outer layers of quartz. However, the outside of these small flat quartz rocks is almost as interesting with variety of different colors, striations, and textures as the inside. Some of the quartz has an almost translucent amber color. As far as I can discern, virtually every one of the quartz rocks harbors either crystals or crystalline structure of opaque quartz: silicon dioxide.

Hiking Down Oregon Bar in Search of the North Fork Ditch Tunnel
From my car at the Oregon Bar parking lot, to the point where I estimated the first tunnel was located, is a little over 2.65 miles. However, those 2 miles, along the river, over the river cobble, cliffs, and sand bars is some of the most challenging and strenuous terrain I have hiked over. There are points where bare rock juts into the river and you must literally climb up and over the slate or granite.
Rejected Because I Was Not Boring and Bland
That smile means I had climbed out of the hole of depression dug, by me, when I became an insurance agent. Selling insurance, from my perspective, is a soul crushing experience. Until I learned how to reset the table where I stopped selling insurance and started educating consumers, did I find a path in the insurance industry. Because, you see, I’m the guy who will take a phone call in a field of lavender to answer your health insurance questions.

It will not entail on you any pecuniary responsibility or outlay at all and will be of no disadvantage. I have recommended you to Col. Wilson the representative of the capital and who will be the President of the company and he unites with me in the request that you should consent to serve.

A Wife’s Letter Searching for Dr. John M. Vaughan in Sacramento, 1850
David, the gentleman Ann wrote had been shot in the back, did make it to California. David Beach was also a cousin of Amos Catlin and several people wrote to Amos about news of David’s gunshot injury. Of the other men listed in the letter to Amos Catlin, Judge Hastings was most likely Serranus Clinton Hastings. Judge Hastings lived and practice law in Iowa. He found his way to California and was appointed to the California Supreme Court and later won the election to become the state’s Attorney General.
Stewing Cherries For Breakfast and Dessert
To start, I have 2 bags of fresh cherries, about 3 to 5 pounds. Then using the hand-held pitter, I pop out the seeds. I then deposit the seedless cherry into a big 8-quart stock pot. Wear an apron unless you want cherry juice splattered on your shirt.
Letters From 1850 Of A Mormon Island Gold Swindle
If you think you can escape from my hands after such dealings, you are mistaken. For by the God who made me, I will have satisfaction, which if it does not shake your pocket will shake your damn cowardly nerves.
Letters From The 1849 Ocean Voyage to California by Amos Catlin
The two letters differ in tone and substance. However, they each give a glimpse of the 7-month ocean voyage around Cape Horn, South America. Amos Catlin’s decision to join the Gold Rush seemed somewhat out of character for a 26-year-old man who had spent his adult life studying and then practicing law in New York. These letters exhibit his detailed observations that would be reflected in letters Amos wrote later while living in California.
The Map Fight over Rio de Los Americanos Rancho Land Grant
In 1843, John Bidwell rode over the potential grant property with John Sinclair. The two men were examining the property for Nathan Spear who was considering petitioning the Mexican government for a land grant. William Alexander Leidesdorff would petition for the property and in 1844 was awarded a land grant named the rancho Rio de Los Americanos by the Mexican government. John A. Sutter subsequently rode over the property with Leidesdorff and would give him juridical possession of the property 4 leagues in width east to west, 2 leagues in length to the south, encompassing 8 leagues of land.
