MACMASTER & MACMASTER MINING STOCK BROKERS P.O. BOX 1063 GOLDFIELD, NEV. Lovelock, Nev. Apr 15/07 Dear Mother, Just got your second letter # 5 addressed to Paradise and letter #6 today here at Lovelocks. Paradise Valley is certainly a Paradise in Nevada. It is a valley about 50 mil long and 20 wide. They have good farming & sheep and cattle. Saw about 3000 sheep in one bunch in that Valley. You ask about going back to Goldfield. Well I can't say for I do not know. I got a good long letter from John this morning. The first I had heard from him. Say Mammy I am going to try and get John to go out prospecting with me a while this summer. he told me he had got a letter from Jep & Viola. Tell Viola I have not had a chance to write to her. Had quite a bunch of letters waiting for me here today. Got papers too. John told me that the trouble was by no means settled in Goldfield. ["John says he does hope I will make a good strike so that one member of the family can say that they did not have to scratch a poor man's - - - all his life." CROSSED OUT] He thinks it is a good chance I have and says to rustle while I have this chance. You must write him and give him all the news. He told me in his letter that he did not get much news since I left Goldfield. Am glad to hear the Grandpa F. is better. ["Tell him to keep kicking and he will See John and I" CROSSED OUT]
