and kindly granted, as a memento of this, our second visit, after an interval of twinty-three years! To preserve in the proper place so welcome a present, we committed the pardonable indescretion of finishing up our drawing on the very paper containing the autograph, as a means to gratify those of our friends who like ourselves, from personal acquaintance with Father Gonzalez, the last survivor of the missionaries, appreciate his excellent qualities. Thus we secured what will become a relic of one whose name, blessed during lifetime by the many hearts he comforted, will after his death stand as the last pillar of the missionary work in California so honorably preceded by Fathers Junipero Serra, Geronimo Boscana, Sanchez, Peiri, Salvidea, Duran, and other distinguished ornaments of the order of San Frnacisco.
