Chandler writes of a party of Indians who skirmished with a party of overland emigrant prospectors on the way to Vancouver Island gold prospects. Chandler also writes on the Fraser Canyon Gold Rush on Vancouver Island and the difficulty that prospectors face with regard to adequate provisions. Chandler asks if Jane would be willing to allow Lissy to come to California, adding that "she could wash the fishes when she gets a little older" and [he] could cook them. He also mentions that "there [are] lots of little girls here and [they] go to all the balls when they are six years [old] and dance like tops." Notations in pencil on the first page at the top read: “Indians.” Pencil marks highlight certain parts of the text pertaining to the title.
