Quotation by Administration in the State of Colo

At the Denver House, a hastily erected log structure roofed and partitioned with canvas, described by Horace Greeley in 1859 as "The Astor House of the Gold Fields," orchestra leader Jones and his spirited men were interrupted by sporadic but not unforeseen bursts of gunfire that sent them diving for shelter behind a low iron-plated enclosure. Before the smoke had fairly cleared away, they were up again desperately playing and singing:
Ha, boys, ho!
Ain't you glad you're out of the wilderness,
Ain't you glad you're out of the wilderness?
Ha, boys, ho!
