PREFACE



THE publication of this book is in no degree an accident, but rather the
partial fulfillment of a long-cherished plan to sometime put in permanent
and fitting form the annals of some of the more historic and romantic
cities and towns of Southern California. This ambition dates back to the winter
season of 1888-9, when the writer arrived in the " Golden State '", became im-
pressed with the transcendent richness of its past history and its abundant promise
of future growth and history-making. What might have been regarded, at the
time, a fancy, or inspiration, has, with the rapid passing of two decades, devel-
oped into a vivid reality. Obscure hamlets have become prosperous cities ;
where then were open stock ranges and broad fields of grain, have sprung up
marts of trade and commerce, environed by progressive and prosperous com-
munities. Enough time has elapsed for these cities and communities to have
acquired a history, still not enough for any considerable portion of that history
to be lost. A few years hence, conditions in this latter respect will have entirely
changed.

The region of country of which this storv treats lies within the original
confines of four Spanish-Mexican land grants bordering the bay of Santa Monica
and has hitherto received scant attention from historical writers. When the good
works of Hubert Howe Bancroft and Judge Theodore H. Hittell were written
the wonderful developments of the past twenty years had not transpired and the
work of n:ore recent writers has been of so superficial a nature as not to be of
special historical value.

The writing of history is not the thought or work of a day, but rather the
diligent pursuance of a fixed and determined purpose. The writer of fiction
may work from an inspiration based upon fertile imagination : the newspaper
writer is the chronicler of current events ; the descriptive writer of travel pictures
that which he then and there observes ; but the historian makes a truthful record
of the past, stating only that which has actually transpired. He indulges in
no ideals, must be keen in discrimination, never self-opinionated or self-assertive,
must be untiring in research, a faithful, patient, plodding gleaner of facts and
an inherent lover of the truth. Lacking these virtues he is without his calling.

The brief history of California and Los Angeles county is herewith given
as a preface to the local history in order that the reader may have a connected
story from the date of the discovery of the country. The state chapters are,
with the exception of some changes and additions, reprinted from my " Century
Annals of San Bernardino County, California (1904.)" The sketches of each
of the twentv-one Franciscan missions of Alta California are adapted from



PREFACE

'' JNIissions and Landmarks '", a meritorious booklet written and in 1903 published
by Airs. Armitage S. C. Forbes, a zealous student and authoritative writer upon
California missions and kindred subjects.

The information utilized in the production of the history of Los Angeles
county and the Santa Monica Ba\- Cities has been gleaned from numerous sources,
prolific of which have been the works of Hubert Howe Bancroft, Theodore H.
Hittell, History of Los Angeles County, Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago, 1890,
Resources of California, by the lamented Charles Nordhoiif ; Reminiscences of
A. Ranger, by Major Horace Bell ; California Blue Books, old maps and numerous
old legal documents. Acknowledgments are clue Editor D. G. Holt for the
loan of complete files of his Santa Moiiica Outlook. Old files of the Los
Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Herald and the Evening Express have all
reflected light upon scenes and events of earlier days. Archives of the city of
Santa Monica, of the city and the county of Los Angeles, have been freely drawn
upon. Files of old legal documents and old court records have been a great
aid in shaping and verifying the histories of land grants.

L'niform courtesy and kindness have been accorded me by many people in
my f|iiest for historical data, for which I am under special and lasting obligations
to Judge J. J. Carrillo. E. J. \'awter, Hon. John P. Jones, W. S. ^'awter, R.
R. Tanner, Esf|.. Judge Geo. H. Hutton, Abbot Kinney, Robert F. Jones. L.
T. Fisher, ]\Iiss Jennie C. A'awter, Miss Emma Vawter, Dr. John A. Stanwood,
Miss Elfie Mosse, Col. G. AMley Wells, INIrs. E. K. Chapin. Rev. J. D. H.
Browne, ]\Irs. Laura E. Hubliell, W. L Hull, Mrs. May K. Rindge, J. B. Procter,
S. W. Odell, Rev. Stephen H. Taft, Mrs. Sarah L. Shively and W. B. IL Taylor.
It affords me pleasure to here make due acknowledgment of the valuable literary
service rendered me almost from the inception of this work by Miss Rose L.
Ellerbe. Her mental training and already wide experience in the field of letters
have eminently qualified her for historical labors and I deem it fortunate that,
in this work, I have been able to command her splendid abilities.

The biographical matter with which the general historical chapters are sup-
plemented will prove a valuable feature of this work. It permanently records
so much of the personal experience of those who have contributed to the devel-
opment of this country and have borne an honorable part in the direction of its
public afifairs as to constitute a fairly comprehensive encyclopedia of local bio-
graphical reference. IMuch careful labor has been bestowed upon the com-
piling of these sketches. The information has been gathered from published
books, magazines and newspapers, by personal interviews with the subjects
thereof, and relatives of those who have passed away.

A somewhat rigid system of submitting these articles to persons from whom
original information was obtained, has been pursued, for the purpose of assuring
accuracy. In doing this, use was made of the \J . S. mail. In some instances
these sketches have not been returned to me corrected and in such cases errors
may appear, for which I must disclaim responsibility. The printing of these



PREFACE

sketches has not in any instance been made contingent upon the payment of
money or in any other form, the support of my enterprise. Neither have they
been written for the purpose of gratifying a desire of any person to appear con-
spicuously in print. I have studiously refrained from writing eulogies upon
the lives of living people. Such form of alleged biography invades the field
of commercialism to such an extent as to render it worthless as history. The
histories of churches and fraternal organizations is l^v no means as complete as
I desire, because the necessary data was not obtainable. It would have been
impossible to illustrate this volume so liberally only for the public spirit of people
who have in many instances shared with me the burden of expense. The labor
and money expended in the production of this book has been a secondary con-
sideration, and to place in the hands of a reading public a reliable and dignified
historical story has been paramount in the author's mind.
