Regarding Marvin Jeter's  observations about the wooden

bar now on Whiskey Row in Prescott AZ and the artifact's possible route of

delivery into Arizona, Aline Laforge responds:

From: Aline Laforge 

It [the route of delivery] would depend when the piece (bar back/mirror) was

shipped, but it would be possible that it [the bar back/mirror] took the CA

overland route from SF across the Mojave Desert, crossed at Beale's crossing

(present day Bullhead City) and continued on the Fort Mojave-Prescott Toll

Road.  It may have also come up river, past Yuma to Camp Alexander, at the

north end of present Bullhead City, where the FM-P Toll Road met the river

before turning south to the fort.
