Don De Fremery explains in an introduction to this manuscript, which is typewritten on 16 legal sheets and bound at the top
like a legal brief, that the items described below were found in Oakland, CA among the papers of attorney Colin Campbell.
(According to De Fremery, Colin Campbell was the lawyer son of Judge Alexander Campbell. Colin's legal specialty was mining
law. At the same time, he owned and operated gold mines himself, albeit it unprofitable ones.)
