The Innocents At Home

(1872)
A non fiction book by

 
 
There were nabobs in those days in the flush times, I mean. Every rich strike in the mines created one or two. I call to mind several of these. They were careless, easy-going fellows, as a general thing, and the community at large was as much benefited by their riches as they were themselves possibly more, in some cases. Two cousins, teamsters, did some hauling for a man, and had to take a small segregated portion of a silver mine in lieu of $300 cash. They gave an outsider a third to open the mine, and they went on teaming. Eut not long. Ten months afterward the mine was out of debt, and paying each owner 8000 to 10,000 a month say 100,000 a year. One of the earliest nabobs that Nevada was delivered of wore 6000 worth of diamonds in his bosom, and swore he was unhappy because he could not spend his money as fast as he made it. A nother Nevada nabob boasted an income that often reached 16,000 a month ;and he used to love to tell how he had worked in the very mine that yielded it, for five dollars a day, when he first came to the country.
