Gold Rush Writing. DRY GOODS

Made it to San Francisco, now to start selling. Setting up my dry goods here. As i first started it went pretty slow but more and more people started to come to San Francisco I started to pick up business. More and more people every day, I started to think about making and living off of this, but then when everything was going well everything went bad. Gold wasn't found every much any more and fewer and fewer people came so not many people needed me after making a farm on there land. After a while my business went out and needed to start over my life but that's a different story.
