General Notes: Henry Spent time on the Goldfields of the Klondike. Some of his Letters were published in the Wapello [Iowa] Democrat, as follows:-

The Land of Gold and Cold. Dawson City, N.W.T. December 7, 1897 Dear Mother: I finished a letter to father ten days ago but the mail has not gone out yet and I do not know when they will undertake to get out with it. It is now some four months since I sent you the last letter, which was on the Yukon as we came down. I sent it by three men who were going out. We have had a few days of milder weather but when it turns cold again we expect it to reach 80 below. When it gets that cold I shall keep in. A man came from Circle City with some Indians and they passed four men frozen to death on the trail. They report trouble at Ft. Yukon on the account of starvation. When I go out on my next trip I will stake a claim for a young woman, she to deed me half and pay for the recording. Before warm weather I expect to have several more good claims. Had I had clothing and grub when I got here I would at least have owned two dozen claims and sell them and get out of here this spring with all the money I would care for. They have started a hospital here and while I do not expect anything to happen to me yet, for fear there might, I have bought a ticket, good for a year which entitles me to care and medical attention. Don't you think I would take any chances and unnecessarily expose myself for I want to be able to get out of here as soon as my band roll is large enough. I bought 60 candles last night at what you would think an outrages price, (amount not given, but they are reported selling at 50 cents each. ED.) but I always did like plenty of light, and it is more then ever necessary in this dark country. We can barely see the sun for a little while. I shall be glad when the days get longer. I am doing some work and am my own boss, making $2.50 an hour right in town and not tied down like I would be in the mines and besides coming up from underground and being struck by a 70 below atmosphere nearly kills a person before he can get to his cabin. A man would be foolish to expose himself if he expects to make any money and finally get out with it. At best the food is very unwholesome. So much old canned foods of every description and nothing of the best and much of it not fully cooked. So I tell you I get tired of it and think of some of the good dishes I used to get at home. I am studying now how you use to make vinegar pies, Mother. As it is very necessary we eat something of it on account of scurvy. DECEMBER 12th: I began this a week ago, left on the run I was writing and got back last night. Located three claims of my own discovery and had them all recorded and the half of each one deeded to me. The other party paying the recording fee and me for my time. They are on Bonanza Creek, close to where they are getting good pay. I waded snow up to my harms for hours and suffered a good deal during the trip, but feel well repaid for the trip. The man who was with me gave out and I had to help him home. Just paid $3.50 for a round of chewing tobacco. A woman wants me to take her 25 miles up Hunker Creek by dog team, and you bet, if I go, I will get good money for the trip. If the eight thousand I sent out get through safely I can sell my claims and clean up a nice pile. It is still 72 below and no one can imagine how cold that is until they try it and we are expecting it to get down to 80 or more and then I shall keep around the cabin. Hope this finds you all well. I will close. Your Son, H.A. Marshall

Henry Marshall writes more letters from Klondike. From the Wapello Democrat: Feb. 5th, 1898 Dear Mother. I am up on Hunker Creek today about 25 miles from Dawson. I came up yesterday, am going back to-morrow. I wrote last in Dec. just after I wrote you I went on a stampede to Rosebud Creek, about 70 miles up to the mouth of it. I went up with a four dog team and four other men. They were all wealthy young men, worth probably $200,000 apiece. I drove the dogs all the way. We have what we call a gee pole attached to the front part of the sled that you keep hold of and walk with one foot on each side of the rope that the dogs pull the sled by. Two of the men got lame by the time we got ten miles and we had to haul and wait on them so that we were two days getting to 60 mile post. The next morning long before day light one man and I took the dogs and an empty sled, leaving everything in the cabin there and went three miles up creek and that was as far as we could go with the sled; there we cashed our sled and harness and struck out on snow shoes with the dogs after us. We staked and got back into the cabin that night by hard work. The second day after starting the cripples ahead we started and I made the run in 14 hours, a distance of 60 miles. I handled the dogs all the way with a heavy load and sprained my leg badly running over the ice so fast. We never stopped, a fast walk or run. My next run was over to 9 mile creek, a three days trip; went up Klondike to Bonanza, up Bonanza to Eldorado, to Nugget Gulch, to the summit and dropped over the divide into left fork of 9 mile creek. It was very cold and we suffered great hardships. One man layed down and went to sleep, we tried every way to wake him, go, but could not. We carried and finally made a fire and saved him. We got back over the divide to Eldorado after the second day so weak and cold we could scarcely walk. I shall be more careful after this what kind of men I go with. The sun has begun to show again and the worst shall soon be over. I donít think I will go out much more; I got all ready to go to America Creek last week but gave it up, it is a long trip and is on the American side. I have fourteen interest now and I think when I dispose of them with what I have I shall get out. The mail has not got in yet and the mail here has not gone out either. I donítthink it will go until the boats go. Am sorry you did not get all my long letters think perhaps you got the ones I sent you over the ice. One year here is equal to 10 years outside on a manís life; the young man that was in the cabin has been in the hospital a month; went to see him and took him a suit of underwear. Cost $10.00 and poor at that. We have had unusually mild winter. We all look anxiously for someone in over the ice but no one comes. I am going out on one of my claims before long. I want to hear from the outside before I go on the creek to stay long. I feel so anxious about all of you, I know I have letters on the way. Feb. 13th--I have been on Bonanza, Bear and Eldorado for several days. I have picked up some nuggets on Eldorado. I have one claim here worth a good many thousand dollars. I have a great hopes of getting out this year but I cannot tell. I wish I had Ida, Dick, Lee, Frank and Clara here. I donít think George would stand it from Clara says. I hope Laura is well by this time. I would advise no one to come now. I got $65.00 and two half claims the last three days trip and the dogs furnished me. I have no dogs and will do without this winter. Oh how I wish for a good square meal. I get pretty tired of the stale, unwholesome food. Tonight I had beans and bacon, evaporated cabbage and onions, dried nectarines, baking powder bread, and coffee for supper. I generally have moose meat for breakfast which I relish very much. It is fine meat. Feb. 20th--It is very cold and they were bringing in frozen men in every day. When I step out of my cabin I can actually my breath crack when it strikes the air. All the blankets and clothes, one can pile on will not keep him warm without furs. I can sleep out anywhere with a sleeping bag or robes. You can see men crippled around everywhere, quite a number have lost toes, fingers and limbs. We just got word that the mail will not get in until Spring. How fortunate I was to get those letters last fall. The northern lights have begun to show again. They are perfectly beautiful. I suppose you hear both good and bad reports from here. There are some great liars here and some gone out They have a purpose for telling them. Some want to buy and some to sell. I have not tried to sell anything for sometime and will not until Spring. There was a new discovery the other day on the hill between Little and Big Bkokum Gulches, they found bedrock at 26 ft. I picked up two little pieces of gravel and it panned at the rate of $15.00 to the pan. I staked close by and if I can hold it, it is all I want. This country is very hard on ones health. I had something like asthma several nights but it is entirely gone now. I have given up hearing from you until Spring. I will close hoping this will find my dear mother and all well. From your son, Henry A. Marshall March 6th, 1898 Dear Pa and Mother: I finished a letter to you about the 28th of Feb. I told you I had given up hearing from you until the boats came in. I went to my Skokum claim and have been there until last night. I heard up at the claim that the mail had come in. I got one letter from you dated in Aug. Was much pleased to get it. One from Frank Paisley dated Aug. One from Dick and Ida dated Sept. 12. One from the south the same date. I feel certain that I have letters on the way from Mother and others. The mail has been at Little Salmon River since last fall. I am going back to Skokum tomorrow and will be there through March. At least I have a good claim there but havenít it open yet. I have hard sinking, going down about one ft. a day through the heavy slide rock and frost by burning. I am within four hundred feet of the discovery hole. I have several pieces of good property here. On Eldora, Bonanza, Skokum, Hunker and Henderson, I have property that is worth money. Deadwood, Mine, Mile, Rosebud and Reindeer Creeks have not been prospected yet, but are worth something. As soon as I get down to bedrock on Bkokum I am going to sink on Eldora. A mans wife picked up as high as $600. a day in nuggets on Bkokum while the men worked with picks. It is not all that way. Everything is taken up almost and the Chechoccoís will have to buy. Chechocco means new comer in Indian and Bkokum means strong. They use a great many Chinook words here. I repeat, I would advise no one to come: They cannot realize the hardships in getting here and after. There is a good fellow wants me to start out with him to the coast next week but I cannot get ready as I have not all my claims in shape to leave. If I had went I should have come right back. When I come out to stay I shall have all the gold I need. I expect to hear soon from the man I sent the money out by. Grub is very high but is coming down a little. No one is suffering on account of grub. Only we have poor variety. Eatables that we really need we cannot get. Flour is 3 oz. per sack, axes 1/2 oz., shovels 1/4 oz. and every thing in proportion. It costs 50 cents to get a shirt washed and 75 cents for the heaviest kinds. I do wish I had Frank or Lee with me when I came. A good handy woman could have made a fortune here this winter and not gone out of her cabin. It will be overdone by next winter. Dick would have made a good man with me this winter and I only wish he had come. I was to have let him know in time to come but you know I could not. I would not know what to say now for I do not know what I might do myself. Send word to Newt Dispain that I shall be true to my word and remember him for he did all he could to help me on my way. He did not cast me off because I was broke like another man of the same town that I had spent dollars on when he had none. He had ten chances to help me where Newt had one and he was under no obligations to me whatever. He is one I consider a true friend and is next in my memory to my family. I have promised to write to him but tell him how hard it is for me to get mail out. I donít think you will hear again until the boat goes out in July. (a couple of these words were guessed at because of the bad copy. JMW) now please all write soon keep sending letters, hoping to find all well I will close. Love to all, your son. Henry A. Marshall P.S. Dick sent me more American stamps, I needed them badly to send letters over the ice. When I mail here I use Canadian stamps.
