The California Pilgrim

Excerpt from The California Pilgrim: A Series of Lectures The author conceived the idea of these lectures while on a visit into the country last summer. He wrote and delivered them. They took this form that the most diverse matters might be wrought into them, and that the writer might relieve the somewhat somber cast of his ordinary discourses, and escape the charge of being a scold. The reader should be informed that the Moral Of each lecture was originally spoken extemporaneously. They are now Written from memory, and given in brief, and for substance only. The burning of Sacramento occurred during the delivery of the lectures; and hence the notice taken of that event, in the ninth lecture. The design of the lectures, in part, was, to benefit a class of people, not otherwise reached by the author's ministra tions. They are published to be Of still further service, if haply they may, to that large class. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
