Description:
Photo includes a information sheet that reads 'Taken from under the shed on the extreme right. The long logs are used as ways over in which to roll logs to the saw. At the flume which comes towards us on the right .We washed the dishes. We took our meals on the logs where the bucket is near the horses. Under the shed we spend the day writing journals and letters back home. On the pole are the harnesses covered with the poncho to keep them dry. It rained in torrents the first night we were there and in the midst the horses got scared. They were way off by a fence on the left(that is were, after Fan had been received from the mire hole in which I had fastened her).In the morning we changed them to the horse station of the picture, fastened to an old rig.' 80.D.(49) on back of the photo.
