3Title:  Joseph Cleary journal, approximately 1852-1854   
 Creator:  Cleary, Joseph. 
 Notes:  This journal consists of lines composed by Joseph Cleary on board the Barque Sarmiento during her voyage from Panama to San Francisco, California. Cleary's voyage is told in twenty-seven eight line stanzas, rhymed A B A B, with a four line chorus after each stanza. While more or less honoring the formal requirements of the poem, he manages to report on the ship, the weather, food, sanitation, officers, crew, lack of water, and his fellow passengers. "The rats which in them got / The rankiest odor up did send / As they did slowly rot...With worms our bread was all alive / Our beef & pork did stink / Though it to eat we still did not starve." Death is a also grim reality, "And most of us are yet alive / Though eight are with the dead." In verse twenty, the crew reaches Honolulu, Hawaii, and remains there until verse twenty-five. "But since the Sandwich Isles we've seen / The time does not seem long / For we much better fed have been...Whilst daily we expect to land / And leave this hateful ship." After the twenty-seven line stanzas, there is a bawdy poem about lice feeding in a mining camp, which is written in mirror image cursive. The next poems are titled, "The Miners Prayer," "Epitaph on a Chinese Grave," and "A description of the view from the western summit of the Sierra Nevada Mountains." "Those mighty Nevadas with steep and rugged fronts lifted high their lofty brows: peering the ethereal Regions of snows eternal...Overlooking the western world: which from here Presents to the beholder a scene in All its bearings truly wonderful and Sublime." His description of the mountains is followed by a note about Penn Valley, California, on April 27, 1854, "A Miner's Surprise," "A trip to the summit of a mountain near Coloma, Eldorado [El Dorado] County, California," and a long poem to "My Dear Sister." He addresses his sister, "I look upon Ohio now / As a poor place to be hoe and plow / And poorer still to gather wealth / And worse by far respecting health / I almost dread to venture back / Least some disease my frame should rack." There are also acrostics spelling, "Elisabeth Dickson," "Maptha Dickson," "Mary Meguire," and "Catherine Mulholland." The final poem in this volume is titled, "Woman." "They're always trying to employ / Their time in vanity and prate / Their leisure hours in social joy / To spend is what all women hate." There is a line of mono alphabetic ciphering on the front blank page with the key written on the back blank page. This line has not been deciphered.

4Title:  John B. Goodman collection, 1919-1991   
 Creator:  Goodman, John B. (John Bartlett), 1901-1991 
 Notes:  The "California Gold Rush Fleet Encyclopedia of Vessels Sailing from the East Coast of the United States and Canada for San Francisco, December 7-1848-December 31, 1849" comprises individual histories of 762 ships as well as various subject files, arranged in alphabetical order. Goodman records a broad spectrum of information derived from a variety of sources about the multitude of Gold Rush vessels. The bulk of the manuscripts are photocopies and some are heavily annotated in the author's hand. Some histories include hand colored illustrations of maps and ships. They were written and edited between 1970-1991. Note: This collection of factual data is also made available in tabular form for "instant recall" in The Key to the Goodman Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet as published by the Zamarano Club in 1992. The addenda box includes various illustrations, lists, and statistics regarding the California Gold Rush vessels. The contents are arranged alphabetically by subject. Boxes 13-18 contain the original typescripts to "Goodman's Encyclopedia of the California Gold Rush Fleet." The contents are arranged alphabetically by ship name. Boxes 19-23 consist of manuscripts and related matter regarding the California Gold Rush. Box 19 contains another version of Goodman's Gold Rush encyclopedia with very few corrections. Folders 5 and 6 are Goodman's draft of factual data in tabular form entitled "The John B. Goodman III Cellular Computer for the 1849 Gold Rush Fleet." Also included is a manuscript of "For California: Direct in 1849-List of Mining Companies Formed in Various States & Sailed from Various Atlantic Seaports." The last two items are photocopies and miscellaneous notes from the San Jose Pioneer. Boxes 20-21 consist of manuscripts and notes removed from two binders. The first binder housed miscellaneous materials accumulated by Goodman pertaining to the California Gold Rush vessels. Subjects found in this binder included a tally of Gold Rush vessels built, a list of ship and map illustrations, a list of arrival and departures, bibliography of works consulted, list of mining companies sailing for California, names of captains and their vessels, list of store ships, and other assorted lists. The second binder consisted of "Boats Arriving in San Francisco Bay," which are notes and excerpts extracted from the San Francisco Weekly, Tri-Weekly, and Daily Alta California. Also removed from this binder is an orange folder with a chronological list of vessels sailing from New York for California and Way Ports from December 7, 1848-December 31, 1849. The last two items in Box 21 are two books: "Index to the Argonauts of California" by Charles Warren Haskins and "A Reminiscence of Parker H. French Expedition through Texas & Mexico to California in the Spring of 1850." Boxes 22-23 consist of clippings, notes, journals, photographs, printed matter, and other materials related to the California Gold Rush. The excerpts and notes are from various publications, which include the Boston Daily Evening Transcript, New York Daily Herald, and New York Tribune. The photographs consist of images of the West from Goodman's personal collection and reproductions of San Francisco photographs from the San Francisco Public Library. The manuscripts and printed matter includes personal stories, autobiographies, and journeys of individuals such as Meredith Tarlton Moore, a soldier in the Mexican War and a trader on the California Trail, and Jacob Marhoffer, a prominent citizen of Crescent City, California. Boxes 24-27 include materials related to Goodman's unpublished manuscript "An Annotated Bibliography of California County Histories." Boxes 24-25 are photocopies of the typescript. Box 26 contains another version of Goodman's California county histories. These were once contained in a binder and appear to be an earlier version of the photocopies in Boxes 24 and 25. Box 27 includes additional pages from Goodman's bibliography. The bulk of these pages are fragments and duplicates. Other contents in Box 27 include correspondence, maps, notes, negatives and prints related to California counties. llustrations are found in Boxes 28-29 and two oversize folders. Box 28 includes pen and ink and rough sketches for John W. Wood, an unknown manuscript, in Goodman's hand. The bulk of these illustrations depict life on the Overland Trails and in the mines. The first folder consists of miscellaneous notes and maps regarding these illustrations. The contents are arranged alphabetically by the caption or title of the illustration. Some of these illustrations include preliminary sketches and prints. Box 29 includes 33 folders of miscellaneous illustrations and ephemera. The bulk of these illustrations are in the hand of Goodman while others are prints. They were possibly done in relation to his work as an art director for Paramount and Universal Studios from 1932-1946. The first oversize folder contains thirty-three printed illustrations for the Thompson and West publication of "History of Santa Barbara County, California." The second oversize folder consists of four miscellaneous sketches and ephemera.
