I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to the California State Library, Sacramento; to the University of California, the California Historical and Pioneer Societies, the Stockton Chamber of Commerce, and the Mariposa Gazette, for assisting me in historical research by giving me entry to their old records and by introducing me to old-timers and recognized historians.
