Outer sheet with printing good condition with crease folds,Pictorial letter sheet: Captain Sutters account of the discovery of gold, with portrait of James Wilson Marshall, and picture of Sutters Mill; printed in 1854. History: Letter sheet tells John Sutters version of how gold was discovered in 1848. He was at home resting, he says, when James Marshall, who had just left two days earlier to repair the sawmill Sutter owned on the American River, returned with gold samples that had been found in the stream below the mill. The two men returned to the site and discovered gold nuggets up to an ounce and half, both above and below the mill. Unhappily for Sutter and Marshall, they could not keep their find a secret. By the end of 1848, the news had flashed around the world, and the Gold Rush was in full swing.
