Phillips, Thomas
This despatch, by Douglas, reports on Thomas Phillips's mining success, along with John McArthur. Douglas goes on to say the following: Their largest earnings for one day amounted to five hundred and twenty five dollars, and no single days work yielded less than twenty five dollars. Both those persons have been mining in California, and are acquainted with its resources, yet they give it as their opinion that Cariboo, as a generally paying country, surpasses the best days of California.
