A letter from Oliver Henry [C.] Hickok, Fiddletown, California, to his brother Horace D. Hickok telling about his poor health. Oliver left home in 1851 and went to California in the wake of the gold rush. He became a teamster on the rough trails around Placerville and Folson. He lost an arm after falling from a wagon, but he continued to work as a teamster. He signed the letter Oliver Henry Hickok; however, his middle initial is C.
