C.A. Earle Rinker letter to his mother, March 17, 1907, page 1
MACMASTER & MACMASTER MINING STOCK BROKERS P.O. BOX 1063 GOLDFIELD, NEV. about 35 mile from Sat Night Tonopha Nev. Mar 17/07 Dear Mother: I have started on another trip. Now dont get excited Mother Dear for I am O.K. and feeling fine. I am going about 280 mile overland in a wagon. A young man by [the] name of J.F. Crumlich and myself are going together. We are headed for a camp called Lovelock. There are two fellows up there waiting for us. One of them is a younger brother of MacMasters. Then we are all going out prospecting together. You send all mail to Lovelock, Nev. until I give you another address. Now it may be several weeks between stretches for your letters to reach me [but] you can write and they will be forwarded to me. You [comence?] with one and Number all your letters so I will know if I get them. MacMasters are grub staking [us] and I get 1/4 of all we locate. It is not costing me anything to go and I stand a great chance to make my stake. Things were so dead in Goldfield I thought I would take the trip. I did not even know I was going on this trip until 2 hours before I started. [Crumlick?] was already to start by himself and Mac's suggested that here was my chance. I jumped at it and here I am. We left Goldfield at 3.20 this afternoon and reached Tonopah at 12:20 tonight. We got out suppers and took in the Camp until now. It is 12:30 but I thought I would write a line.
