The BC Adventure 35
27 October, 1922
My own Lovey Darling,
Thank you so much for your two letters dearest. I was very very glad to hear that you were feeling so much better. Hope you got my wire, sent to Joey, saying I’d got the money back & plant was running pretty well. I had quite a little trouble getting it to run efficiently – case of more haste less speed. I cleaned up to 330 oz for a 5 day run on ground that the rockers had picked the eyes out
of. The payment was completed the night before last, so the job is safe till August 1, 1923 now. Units are being sold at $10. Ennis had one lump up of 25 oz. But his of course is not rich ground. I started my plant within an hour of his starting up, though I had to shut down again with magazine trouble.
I've put in one visit – a whole day – down at Cons. Investment Co. Couldn't find a colour – that's confidential – but am having them rock steadily for several days & am going down again on Sunday. Just going down to show a foreman the line for the road alongside the Lake. They (Govt) are spending $41,000 on it (6 ft wide) as a pack trail this fall.
Had a cold last 3 days, but it's better today. Coat arrived 2 days ago and a box of clothes today. Haven't opened the latter yet. Thank you very much darling.
By this mail I am sending a Cheque as under to our bank, telling them to notify receipt to you.
