On offer is an interesting, original 1935 manuscript diary handwritten by early San Fernando resident, Los Angeles school teacher and gold miner George H. Prince. Born sometime in 1864 thusly 71 years old at this writing the hugely energetic, ambitious gold miner fills the diary with his work, successes, usually using sluice boxes as George, his family and associates find numerous gold nuggets with super detail from January 1, 1935 through to March 11th when he returns to San Fernando Valley. April to July he works taking fishing parties out of Huntington Beach and by July 27th they move their gold mining operation to the forks of the South Salmon River in Siskiyou County. George returns to Burbank, August 25, 1935. His final entry reads "144 days spent in the mountains helping gold mining for which I received $130.95 and board." George H. Prince was also a successful fruit grower in the San Fernando Valley perhaps the gold mining was an attempt to find more income during the depression or perhaps he was driven by the gold bug. The cover of the 370 page, 3½ x 6 inch book is weathered and stained, otherwise overall G+
