Full titleDate Palm. "Date Palm -- in the garden of the San Gabriel Mission. One of the oldest palms in the country -- planted by the early fathers. No single tree ever gave me such a thrill as this solitary palm standing erect & graceful, like a strange being in an atmosphere of its own — a goddess with the serenity, grace & dignity of the Venus de Milo. About a hundred years old or more." 202.
