C. A. Earle Rinker letter to his family, Mar. 31 1907, page 2

Full Text

I am keeping a daily diary and you can read it. I am getting plenty of tough experience but am feeling fine. I am eating enough for 10 men. It gives a fellow a pretty good appetite to climb hills and walk about 20 to 35 miles a day. I can wak 25 miles now and not wear me out at all. It surprises me for I had not been used to exercise at all. We did not stay up at [Seven Troughs?] but 3 days. We are going to another country. I am getting toughened up in great shape now. It looks as though we are going to stand a pretty good chance to go in empty handed but I will be satisfied if I only keep my health. It is giving me some valuable experience. We were about 1 1/2 hours climbing one mountain up at Seven Troughs. We went out prospecting one day in that country. I will have to quit now and write India a few lines. Tell both my Grandpa's that I am O.K. and will talk will their heads ring when I get back. Hope you are all well. Earle We leave here in the morning. Address me at Paradise, Nev. ["Boyer" crossed out, "Paradise" written underneath] I have drove over 350 miles so far.
