He and his two of his brothers, Frank and Charles, went to Alaska in the 1898 Gold Rush to seek their fortune. While there they lived with some Eskimos. They came home with enough gold to make their sister Violet a bracelet. I sure wonder what ever became of that bracelet. I would love to see it." -- Anne Denhoff Morgan in 1898.5
