From Mr. Parrott to home in Massachusetts. Stamped Sacramento City, Cal, Jan 31. Date written on letterhead. Two handstamps PAID and 40 (rate to send mail).
I have for the last four months been employed in the lumber yard of Jones & Co. at fair wages, but I have as yet come to settlement with them.
I am about changing for the mines...I took a trip up to Weberville (the same place where Pliny Davidson worked) and while there bought Into a company which are commencing extensive mining operation at that place and the prospect at this time looks fair for a good summers work.
This bar has been worked as much as any other place in California and has probably yielded as much gold as any other...
Weberville was founded in 1848 and located between present-day Placerville and Diamond Springs in El Dorado County. By March of 1851 it was reported in the Sacramento Transcript that the miners have done better the last week than the last five months. Mr. Parrott might be a very happy miner? Letter is three pages long and full of information!
