This is correspondence sent during a cattle drive from Oregon to California. Beginning at Rock Point, along the Rogue River, the letter written by a man named Cal and addressing "Friend Mark" was written in Rock point a popular gathering spot for drives to begin. It talks about the upcoming route that includes Yreka. He also mentions his friend's brand being on one hip of the cows and his current outfit's mark on the other.
Great historical record of a cattle drive.
