CONTINUATION OF MISS DAVIS'
DESCRIPTIVE LETTER LONE
LY MOUNTAIN GRAVE.
Following is a continuation of Ar
va Davis' letter telling of the over
land journey (from Enterprise to Cen
September 19 we left Pine Creek
and just after crossing the line and
starting through California Mr. Da
vis had to shed hla heavy coat, and
put it away. He put his linen one on.
We all thought of -what you Wallowa
people told us about California being
so warm, but he soon found the
weather changeable, for It was really
cold. His coat being put away so he
couldn't very easily get to It, he sat
and shivered and was very nearly
frozen the balance of the day. As
we had. our bedaj fixed oni the wagons
the girls crawled Into bed and stayed
there all day. We have now left
Goose lake. We made camp on Davis
creek, finding It very cold, in fact,
colder than It has been ' since we
September 21 we reached Alturas
on the north fork of the Pit river,
and camped over night. The altitude
here being 4,100 feet we found It
still quite cold.
September 22 we traveled to Canby
24 miles from Alturas, on Pit river.
Here we found a hot spring which
was near by the road. There were
other hot springs around through the
country. We changed our minds now
about the weather being colder in
California than in Oregon. Driving
on a short distance we stretched
camp on the river. Shortly after
supper, it now being dark, Mr. Little
ton and Arva and Vergle Davis, with
the lanterns, Btarted out fishing,
thinking that the light might help us
out some about catching them, and we
failed. They are now convinced that
dry land suckers are all that would
September 23 we started on and
soon reached a small mountain. At
the summit we found a lone grave,
about 20 miles away from any one.
The tombstone was marked, "Albert
Sghleflen, died in the year 1883."
We drove on to the hot mineral
lake, where we camped over night,
with hot and cold water, which was
piped from the hot and cold springs.
We all thought well to get rid of the
Wallowa dirt on us, so as to give
room for some of the California soil,
but we believe that the Wallowa
soil Is the richest for it makes a
larger showing. We all certainly
enjoyed the baths, also camping there
for we had a fine camp ground.
Near the place mentioned above were
some fine alfalfa ranches, but a good
deal of sand.
