Travel to the Victor Cemetery (North on Chief Victor's Camp Road). Find the grave of Abraham Steams Blake.
A.S. Blake was one of Montana's earliest pioneers. He was on the ill-fated Yellowstone Exp. of 1863, and was a juror in the first trial ever held in MT. Steams was elected as a member of the House of Rep. at its first session (1889-90) and a delegate of the State Legislative Assembly in its second session (1891-92). He donated the land for the Victor Cemetery.
Once you find the grave, turn and face east (your back to A.S. Blake's headstone). See that the large tree in front of you, walk towards it. Find the headstone for Francis Smith. Behind this headstone you'll find the letterbox. Please make sure and cover it back up so others can find it.
