Gold Shipment Troubles
Crystal Lake, Oregon – July 6, 1876. Hope has been abandoned for early recovery of $20,000 in gold bullion lying on the bottom of Crystal Lake, it is announced by the Barton Insurance Company today. Although the box containing the bullion can be seen in the clear water, the depth of the lake makes it impossible to retrieve it. Barton has sent to Baltimore for deep sea divers who are en route over land. Gold was thrown off stagecoach during a holdup attempt two weeks ago.



Half the price of the Eastern divers



And man must make the angels laugh.”


Again, in your first fine consolatory epistle you say, you are a temporary sharer in human misery, that you may be an eternal partaker of the Divine Nature.’ What more than this do those men say who are exalting the man Christ Jesus into the second person of an unknown Trinity, men, whom you or I scruple not to call idolaters? Man, full of imperfections, at best, and subject to wants which momentarily remind him of dependence; man, a weak and ignorant being, ‘servile’ from his birth ‘to all the skiey influences, with eyes sometimes open to discern the right path, but a head generally too dizzy to pursue it; man, in the pride of speculation, forgetting his nature, and hailing in himself the future God, must make the angels laugh.”
Charles Lamb in a letter to Samuel Coleridge
