August 8, 1862: San Francisco

August 8, 2012

….[today I] went to Suisun, took steamer and arrived here the same night….I sent the party on up the Sacramento Valley, where I will join them in about a week, at Red Bluff, the head of navigation on the Sacramento.

On my arrival here I found the whole city in excitement and mourning over the loss of the Golden Gate, a terrible calamity. Everyone has lost friends and acquaintances by that accident. I sent some papers telling about it.
