Description 1905; Blair, George E., to Nellie Thatcher Blair. The first letter, January 19, 1905, finds George in Blackfoot and Rexburg, Idaho, on business. Is ill and bothered with rheumatism. Wants to stop using coffee as he feels this contributes to his ill health. In February and March he writes Nellie from the gold fields of Nevada. Tells of the cold weather and the bleakness of Nevada and about the mining camps. Is anxious about home and the children. Mentions seeing the property from which they have had good reports and hopes it will make us easy after while. May 1, 1905, he reports going to the mines in Goldfield, Nevada. Discovered rich ore in the Red Dog and notes it was fairly plastered with gold and washed nice little nuggets out of the placer. Is going to San Francisco to list Red Dog on the exchange. Has prospects of making lots of money, so things will be easier. Letters from San Francisco tell of the sights of the city, such as the Cliff House, etc. Sends his love and instructions to the children. Has heard the mine will be producing soon. Last item is a telegram from San Francisco, saying he will arrived home on Sunday
