[typed on blank 1908 Goldfield Hotel register sheet]Riverside, California December 15, 1942The Mining Association of the Southwest Los Angeles, CaliforniaFellow Members: Thanksgiving week, it was my pleasure to turn once moreto Goldfield after an absence of 35 years. Memory of the boom days (after my arrival from Butte in 1906) were thoughts of Tom Lockhart, Wingfield, Monnetta, Oddie, Tex Rickard, and highgrading that was reputed to have hit an all time high of $1,500,000 per month. Today not a miner is working in that entire camp and most ofthe town is in ruins, while I met but three former acquaintanceswho had stuck it out all these years. It is my good fortune to present to our organization this book of early day souvenirs from Goldfield, Nevada. Respectfully yours,[signed: Leslie McCullough]T. L. McCullough [handwritten: P.S.
