Title:J.H. Beeman letters: Gold Hill, Calif., to Mort, 1896
Creator/Contributor:Beeman, J. H., creator, correspondent.
Creator/Contributor:Wilson, E. P., correspondent.
Ten handwritten letters (15 p.) written from two gold mining areas in California, Gold Hill and Bart Mill. Most are addressed
to "Dear Mort" from J.H. Beeman and his likely spouse, Hattie. One letter, addressed to "Mac" from E.P. Wilson, also mentions
Mort. Topics mostly concern gold, mining, ores, and mine production. (There are two places in California called "Gold Hill,"
one in Placer County and the other in Nevada County; it is unclear which place these letters originate from.)
