Diggings

Come to my diggings. To my rooms, residence, office, sanctum. A word imported from California and its gold diggings.

“My friend here wants to take diggings; and as you were complaining that you would get someone to go halves with you, I thought I had better bring you together.” —A. C. Doyle: A Study in Scarlet, chap. i.
