C. A. Earle Rinker letter to his family, October 25, 1906, page 2

Full Text

Yesterday afternoon while on the train I looked at my bottles in my suitcase and they were O.K. The first thing I did last night after I got in John's Room wasto open my suitcase to get the stuff off my hands. One bottle was broke and everything was soaked. I did not even have a clean Kercheif to start out with this morning. I put them in the wash this evening. I don't know how I will get the stain off my pants. John is looking pretty good. He is working every day and he told me last night that he would wire for Uncle Lowel the next morning to come to Goldfield if he thought he could come.He is sure Uncle Lowell could get a job as carpenter at from 7:00 to $8:oo per day. Tell you this is the liveliest place that ever happened. everything is on the jump. Hundreds of Thousands Dollars change hands here every day. Some of the women here are the heaviest plungers and some of them are in the Office all the time. Some of them are very fortunate. There was a little shooting scrape heretonight. Two fellows tried to puncture each other and one of them succeeded. Everything is wide open and I have not seen a drunk since coming to Goldfield. The only thing I don't like is the dust which is about 6 inches deep. The elevation here is over 6,000 ft. and I tell you I can tell a big difference. I think I will get used to that part of it however. Well I will ring off for tonight hoping this finds you all O.K. Earle The boss just shoved me over a fist full of stamps and told me where to get more when those were gone. Earle
