GEORGE GOSS LETTERS Chili Camp March 25 [1852]

Dear Parents

I have a few moments that I can spend in writing so I improve them and in a hasty
way of writing to the fact is I cant stop to be nice about it my health is the
same as when I wrote I am in Co with Mr White perhaps I wrote so in my letter.
this fore noon we washed out seventeen dollars & fifty cts and tomorrow
perhaps we shall get as much more and perhaps we shant get a tenth part as much
we dont know any thing about it till we work it but shall keep to work as long
as it will pay wages and we can get water tell Coz Tirza that I rec'd a very,
very good Letter and will answer it soon if Levi or Leonard thinks of coming
here tell them to make up their minds to work hard for all they get and stay here
some time to get much tell Coz George to answer my letter to him and Coz Fanny
if she wants to run through the brush with a grizzly after her to come on and I
will help her tell Bowman that I have been wanting to write to him but dont
find time yet hope I shall soon and tell all the Cozs' to be shure and
write you may continue to direct your Letters to Woods Diggins if I leave
I can send for them you must all write as often as you can I have no more
time to write so good by for this time

Geo Gofs 

Pleas hand the inclosed Letter to James Miller as directed
