It was a placer-mining center settled by Chinese miners in 1849. This one page bill of sale signed by W. C.

McMan I do bargain and sell all my right title and interest in and to a certain mining claim situated on six bit gulch and known as six bit gulch fluming claim...". The paper has toned with age and there is a small tatty area at the upper left corner, else it is in good condition.
