I miss you a great deal, but I feel good about this. I'm gonna get rich real fast and bring you and the kids here soon. The gold rush is picking up fast. There is a lot of people in the mine camps and kind of crowded and uncomfortable, but its the best place to be. I love working out with the other men in the streams. They've taught me a great amount about finding gold. I've found a few flakes, but nothing that would last more than a few months. I hope to be telling you we're set for life in my next letter.
