General note

Notes on the interleaving pages in Dally's hand read: The night of the fire numbers of us that had been burnt out went to Barkerville [Richfield?] to find a place to sleep in, and I with others took refuge at the hotel almost facing the Court House, where we laid down on the bare boards of the Saloon, in the morning a row of wet impressions remained on the floor from the wet blankets that we had been sleeping in.

On a previous occasion Mr. Parke a Solicitor was having a glass at this saloon, when a man rushed in to inform him that his shanty was on fire - never mind said he!! I have the key in my pocket!

During the fire I went to and fro saving all the goods that I possibly could from my house and made a cache of them by covering them over with blankets that I had soaked in the Creek, and a miner remarked look at those Chinamen running up the hill side "The have been and helped themselves at your heap of goods!!
