    Upon the arrival of the stage, the first named levelled a shot- gun
    at the driver and ordered him to tum- ble out the bullion as soon as
    God would let him. The other maji also threatened to shoot the driver
    if he refused to comply with the demand. Accordingly he threw out the
    bullion, consisting of eight bars, when the stage was allowed to proceed
    on its way without further molestation.

    Of the stolen bullion seven bars have already been recovered.
    They were found by four men and some Indians, who prospected
    the ground passed over by the robbers.

    Hume comprehensive report

    you can see imgs of the book Hume carried and made for LE

    In 1885, Hume and Thacker published a comprehensive report called
    the “Robbers Record.”
    In it, they recorded details of 347 robberies and attempted robberies
    on Wells Fargo treasure shipments transported by stagecoach and
    train between 1870 and 1884.
    They also provided detailed descriptions of 205 convicted robbers to
    aid law enforcement officers.
