Quartz find & to know of its good prospects. It realy sounds as if at long last the real thing has been found. The location is splendid as I see it. It looks as if that ledge may be the one that fed Williams & Grouse Crk. I have often wondered how the shaft below the Reduction Whs turned out. Did you prove it n.g. or leave it unproven.

While I think of it please send me Maurice Davies address. I wrote him a long letter last July it never came back but I had to put a poor address on it as I had lost his. Perhaps he never got it so I will write again Mrs D & M. D. were both very kind when we were in Victoria. I also wrote to McKenzie at hydraulic at the same time, again no answer
