Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 18 page 104
Description:
San Juan Bautista  peak and built his house at the foot of it. Gabilan? Yes, you see the top peak, then the little peak below, well thats the  head and bill of a gabilan. The Spanish looking at it from the Mission said it looked like a gabilan. The mass of dark trees filling the canon made the body of the gabilan, the spurs or bare ridges one on each side made the wings. A gabilan is an eagle. The Indians had sacred places of sacrifice on the hilltops. You see that cross up there? Well the Franciscan converted all ::::::::: March 3-4, 1908.  all the Indian heathen worship spots into Christian places. [How much that sounded like early Rome!] -- Then Mark Reagan told the story of the Five Merchant Princes of San Juan, how their lack of public spirit kept the railroad away from the place and left San Juan weeping high and dry, they and their families all coming to a bad end.  On the road to the Mission is a row of Cottonwood trees, the old Alameda. An Indian was hung on one of the trees. It was found he was innocent, the tree died as did all the trees on that side the street.
