Excerpt from Souvenir, Redding Ceremonial: Islam Temple, A. A. O. N. M.S., Redding, California; April 22-23, 1922
San Francisco in July, 1849, probably contained some inhabitants. It was about the size that Redding is now. It was all bustle and activity. Goods of all descript... ions were piled along the narrow sidewalks. The small houses which the Bay Cities then contained ahorded but little room for storage. Everybody seemed to be getting ready to rush off to the mines. Schooners, boats and every variety of light-draft water craft were in great demand to carry passengers into the interior, particularly to Sacramento and Stockton. The Sacramento River was swarm ing with hopeful, song-singing gold hunters, pushing forward to grasp all that had been pictured in their golden dreams of for tune. Sacramento, at that time, was a lively town of tents and canvas houses. There were then but two or three frame wooden buildings in the town, but during a period of two and a half months Sacramento made a magic growth and had risen to the rank of a populous city.
The trip from Sacramento to Shasta in 1849, is described as follows by an old Shasta pioneer, Dr. Benjamin Shurtleff.
