Two ALS dated at Columbia, California, written by Alvah I. Davis to "Wm. B." and "Dear Will," a friend in the East.

A letter dated 1855 Jan 27-28 describes in detail his experiences during the wreck of the Yankee Blade and discusses his impressions of Columbia and his life as a miner. The letters are accompanied by typed transcripts.
