animals In March, 1862. en route to
the Florence diggings. Lewiston was
then a tent town of many thousands,
mostly miners who had spent the pre
vious season in Pierce and Orofino dis
tricts. His party remained here only a
few days and pushed on toward Flor
ence. They had to abandon their
horses en route and pack In on foot
