November 21, 1863: Crescent City

Crescent City 05

Crescent City; by Tom Hilton, on Flickr

[The Oregon] did not leave until [this afternoon], when we went aboard about 3 P.M. There is no dock—the steamer anchors two or three miles from the shore. Surfboats come up as close as possible. We got into a cart, which was drawn out by a horse to the boat. We clambered in and were rowed to the ship. This cost us two dollars. We were soon under way, and [this] evening I sat and listened to the purser tell stories of Utah. He spent eighteen months among the Mormons.
