BC Historical Books
The early history of the Fraser River mines Howay, F. W. (Frederic William), 1867-1943
"(British Columbia. Provincial Archives. Memoir no. 6)
Comprised of correspondence. 'The letters that are in this volume consist of a part of the correspondence of Richard Hicks from October, 1858, to May, 1859; of Chartres Brew, the Chief Inspector of Police and Assistant Chief Gold Commissioner, from November, 1858, to April, 1859; of Judge Begbie from January, 1859, to March, 1859; together with a few scattered but illuminating documents. The selection, however, has been carefully made with a view of showing the men, and the life of the time, the difficulties of maintaining order and collecting revenue, and generally the conditions prevailing in the Colony of British Columbia - that is, on the Fraser River when it was in its swaddling-clothes.' - p. xii" -- Lowther, B.
