The following two letters were re
ceived recently by John Cameron,
who lives on route 2, out o f Central
Point from his son, Edward H, 26,
who is making his first trip to Nome,
Alaska, aboard the steamer Donald
son. Edward spent last Christmas at
his parents home here, after spending
some time in Siberia on a trading
vessel and expects to be home again
this year fo r Christmas.
He is a
graduate o f the Adcox auto school,
Portland, whicn he entered when he
was 16 and later taught the engin
eering trade there for five years.
John Comeron has in his posession
a pair o f mucktocks, an Eskimo mac-
assin, which is made from seal skin
and reindeer, also a Siberian trap
made entirely with a knife, carved
from wood, used for catching game
and ermine. The letters follow:
