Excerpt from The California Mail Bag, Vol. 1: July, 1871 Salt Lake City, about this time, swarmed with worn and weary pil grims on their way to the gold country. Also, troops of Mormons were arriving at their promised land, after fatiguing journeys across hundreds of miles of the sage-brush country: Holladay saw in this another source of profit; he bought their jaded animals, recruited them, and sent them by easy stages to California, where they commanded high prices. Arriving here, Mr. Holladay made contracts with William H. Aspinwall. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
