Folds, creases, heavy toning. 5.25 x 9.75" Not in Filer or Holabird indexes. Mentioned in a Daily Alta California Sept. 24, 1864 report of the Del Norte Mines. The author visits the site of the Lady Bell, near the north fork of the Smith River. "This is quite an important location, from the magnitude of the undertaking to open the mine, and the fact that the ground embraces two distinct veins— one 600 feet from the mouth of the tunnel, the other 1,600... Both veins seem reliable. Hence, the first will be cut at 600 feet below the surface; the second at 900." State: California City: Del Norte County Date: 1863
