Gold Rush Life

San Juan Island Febuary [February] 28th 1868

My Dear Brother Since I last wrote you, I have received two letters from you. One, under date of Oct. 8th, and one of Dec 17th, the one of Oct. 8th enclosing one from Mother under date of Sept 14th. I commenced an answer to your letter of Oct. soon after receiving it, but having to go to Portland, at that time, I thought that I would finish it on the voyage down, and mail it there, the weather was rough that I was unable to do this ...

Private Victoria V I [Vancouver Island] Febuary 4th 1865

My dear brother In my last to you I inclosed [enclosed] a long private letter, but as I fear that you may not have received it I will briefly recapitulate its substance, which related cheifly [chiefly], to a difficulty with Mr Cutlar my partner. In July last I intended to have sent you two thousand dollars to apply upon my indebtedness to you & Ashley, as we had a brisk little run of business and I thought it my duty to draw out all that I possibly could for you. Mr ...

Victoria V I [Vancouver Island] Febuary [February] 4th 1865

Dear Brother Your welcome letter under date of Oct. [October] 6th last came to hand only last week, where it has been all this time, is a mystery [that I] which I wish, that I could solve. I wrote you a long letter in August which you should have received at or about the time your letter is dated, and I have been anxiously looking for an answer to it for some time past, and began to think that you surely could not have rec. [received] it, but as ...

Letter From Augustin Hibbard To [William Hibbard] 1864 May 30, Augustin Hibbard

Gold Rush Life

Victoria May 30th 1864 Dear Brother When I wrote you in January I did not think that I should allow so long a time to lapse before writing you again. But the prospect of my selling out here, and going home, which I fully advised you of at that time, has resulted in nothing but disapointment [disappointment], and has kept me in such a state of uncertainty and doubt that I had been expecting from week to week would be put an end to that I have delayed writing you much longer than I ought, or will again. The ...

Please return this soon William

San Juan Island Sep 25th/63 [1863]

Dear Brother

Yours of July 30th came to hand last week and received a warm welcome, it is such a pleasure and relief to me to hear from home. When I say this you perhaps may wonder why it is that I am so delinquent in writing but the fact is my dear brother that I have little to write about except myself (and that so very unsatisfactory) that I often commence a letter and give it up thoroughly overcome with the blackest kind of blues. The isolated ...

Gold Rush Life

Victoria June 2d 1863 Dear Brother Yours of Mch” [March] 26th was received last week, and afforded me much pleasure, and gratification as it had been sometime since I had received any news from any one at home, and I was becoming fearfull [fearful], that when I did hear from you, that I should get bad news, but thank God, my dear brother, such was not the case, and I have been once more rejoyced [rejoiced] to know that you were all enjoying good health, and were prospered spiritually and temporally. I find that I am not able to ...

San Juan Island Mch [March] 14th 1863

My dear Brother Enclosed I send you an account of sales of the Rubber Boots & Shoes shipped me by Ashley the charges on them, are only what I actually paid out on them and nothing in the way of commissions. The shipments were unfortunate though the goods, being of such an inferior quality, had they proved equal to Haywards Boots &, Shoes that are sold in this market, I think that I could have made something upon them instead of being obliged to sell them at a ruinous loss. I had a great ...

San Juan Island March 14th 1863

My Dear Brother When I wrote you last under date of Dec [December] 21st I mentioned (for the hundredth time probably) that I was going to improve, and write you oftner, than I had been in the habit of doing, but alas for human resolutions, and most especially my own, for they are barren of fruits, and productive of only regrets, at their failure. I have however been exceedingly occupied since I last wrote, the winter being unusually fine and dry, there has been a demand for lime, that we were unprepared ...

Victoria V I [Vancouver Island], Nov [November] 10th 1862

My Dear Brother I arrived here this morning from San Juan Island, and found your welcome letter awaiting me at the Post Office. I regret that I did not get it sooner, but I have not been in Victoria for about six weeks, and although I have requested persons to enquire for the letters for me, they have reported none. I am confident however, from the date of yours Aug [August] 28th, that it must have been here the last time I sent. I am sure that I do ...

Victoria July 27th 1862 My Dear Brother

On my return to this place last week from Portland, Oregon, where I had been something over a month on business, I found your two welcome letters of April 10th & May 28th. I cannot understand why it is that letters are so delayed on the way from Canada to this place, I ought to have received yours of April 10th previous to my leaving for Portland, neither do I receive more than one half of the letters you write me, for you mention that for the past year you ...

Victoria April 24, 1862

Dear Brother

Yours of Feby [February] 14th came to hand last mail, but the Steamer remained here so short a time that I had not time to answer it then. The [receipte] of it gave me much pleasure for I had not heard from any of you at home for a long time. The last letter that I received was from Ashley under date of Jany [January] 1st which I answered on Mch [March] 5th. I shall expect to hear from him again in May. Our mail facilities for the past year have ...

Coloma Jany [January] 12th 1854

My Dear Brother

I believe that you of all the family write me the oftnest [oftenest], and your letters are always interesting and generaly [generally] long ones. Therefore in inditing this short Epistle to you I feel that shall still remain largely in your debt. I should have certainly written you a long letter by this mail had I not known that the letter to Father & Mother would be read by you and that you would consider it the same as you would were it addressed to you. In one of your letters you mentioned ...

Rich Gulch April 28th / 53 Dear Brother I received your letter of Febuary 28th, the other day giving a good account of things at home. It found me well and hardy and diging gold in the Old Gulch. I sent you a map [letter] the first of April with a few lines in it. Since, I sold my ranch for five hundred dollars. So after debts are all settled I will have about that much "ahead of the game” I have had another mule stolen since I wrote you last winter. Three others wer stole at the same time from ...
