O'ER THE HILLS, FAR AWAY [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 19 January 1900
O'ER THE HILLS, FAR AWAY Trip to the County Seat of Inyo. A BEAUTIFUL VALLEY-SOME GRAND SCENERY Country That Is of California but Not Cahfornian— Teachers' Institute. ELIZABETH SARGENT-WILSON The old saying of "Around Robin Hood's Barn" becomes literal in making a trip from here to Inyo county. It is not far, "Just over the mountains" we say, as we look at Amador and Mono counties on the map, but when one undertakes the journey all is changed. Those mountains that lie ■ between make miles of inches and stretch hours into days. The- Sierra! The glory of California! They shelter her from blizzard, shut out the desert, and pen in the sunshine that- decks her form with the golden garb of beauty and wealth. As the Alps cradled the poets and artists of old, so our Sierra are destined to shelter the bards and painters of the future. The traveler of the present finds but the "Rocky Road to Jordan" in going the short way. Inyo'is southeast of us, so to get there from Jackson we Start in a no...
Card of Thanks. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 19 January 1900
Card of Thanks. To ill the citizens of Jackson who rendered service and sympathy during the late illness, death and burial of my beloved son, I desire to express the sincerest gratitnde that can emanate from a parent's heart. I shall ever remember Jackson and its generous and sympathetic people with a feeling of kindness that my words are Inadequate to express. Never, it seems to me in tbe history of mankind, have strangers in distress and sore trouDle been better received or sympathized with more keenly, or assisted more readily, than have the goodhearted people of Jackson tenderly cared for my loved son, Frederick, and efficiently assisted a bereaved and broken-hearted father. My grief was great and my heart ached, but the tender sympathy of the people of Jackson soothed the sorrow and alleviated the pain. I desire to expressly thank the managers and employes of the Zeila and Argonaut mines for the large contribution raised to defray the expense of my son's sickness and burial, an...
