About the Edition

Born in Aurora, New York, Alonzo Delano (1806-1874) moved on to the Midwest as a teenager. July 1848 found him a consumptive Ottawa, Illinois, storekeeper, and he joined a local California Company. He remained in the West after the Gold Rush, winning fame as an early California humorist. Alonzo Delano"s California correspondence (1952) is an annotated twentieth-century reprinting of his letters, April 1849-August 1852, to newspapers in his home town of New Orleans. They cover his voyage to St. Joseph and an overland journey to California; sojourns in Sacramento, Marysville, and San Francisco; and experiences as a storekeeper at Mud Hill, Stringtown, Gold Lake, and Grass Valley. Topics include quartz mining, crime and vigilantism, and real estate investment. In 1857, Delano revised and expanded these letters for his book Life on the plains and among the diggings.
