Henry Huntley Haight, a young lawyer who had moved from St. Louis to San Francisco in 1850, a future governor of California, writes to his younger(?) brother in St. Louis about coming west to practice law: "I wrote to father relative to your coming here to practice. Of course he & yourself will consult your own interests... I cannot promise should you decide to come that you will make a fortune suddenly but I am doing so well that I should be pleased to have you come and take the chance with me for a few years.
