    • May 27   1937      I did not sleep well last night. The Indian Shaman came to me in a dream but it seemed very real. He told me once again that our crew is big medicine. We are brave warriors and held in the highest regard by the ancient people. But he told me that we have been marked to return home and are at this time walking dead men. I was shaking when I got up and stoked the morning fire. Part of it was nerves and part was cold. The crew gathered around for breakfast and I did not mention what I had dreamt.     I poured a good amount of whiskey into my coffee and started to think about the day ahead of me. Ben was anxious to work on the mine. I told him to take it easy and steady the first few days until his body got used to the hard work. We headed up to the dig site and cut back into our drift. This entire channel running east and west had good gold and had tested out well. I believed there were thousands of ounces of gold up here and aimed to get some of it.    Ben was a good worker and he liked to talk while he dug. He told me how thankful he was to be with our crew and helping out in any way he could. He was real excited about finding the treasure and his part of it. I told him that hopefully we could make a deal to sell some or all of it. I wanted to keep some of it as well but every man would need to make his own decision on that.    We worked until dusk and didn’t set any records for buckets but were able to send John 160 of them. It would be interesting to see what we got out of them because my test pans were showing a lot of coarse gold.    At supper we all talked about the next day. We would be going into town to talk with the broker. John and I had come up with a plan to get him out to the mine and show him some examples of what we had and then go from there. We didn’t intend to let him leave knowing we had treasure. He would have to become a temporary partner. Once he was out here he was not going back to town.      TO BE CONTINUED .................
