Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 16
Vacaville.  - "What is that lily that grows along streams, on the McCloud & Squaw Creek", asks Judge Platt. "Single leaf; you know it, lots of it! Just one big leaf. Oh, you know". = Saxifraga peltata! He says the fishermen call it "Water Lily", evidently because of its great single leaf, like some "water lilies". ---------- - No. 5166, Calycanthus occid. Weldon Canon, 1/4 mile from Vacavalley Road. No. 5165. Eschscholtzia cal. straw-col autumn form taken from area of marked plants but not from marked plants; along r.r. near Davis ranch. No. 5166. see above.    ::::::::: Sept. 28, 1912.  - Judge Platt, my old-time companion of botanical trips is a picturesque character. All the portugese, chinese, germans, italians, hindus, japs and mexicans come to him with their troubles. He has lately been forcing the S.P. Co. and North German Lloyd S.S. Co. to disgorge passage money advanced and not used. Poor Spanish settlers here sent the companies money to bring out their 2 relatives in Spain but the relatives for some reason were not allowed by the laws of Spain to come. The companies simply held onto the money until Platt took hold. The N.G. Lloyd is the more refractory and Platt now appeals to the R.R. Com. of Cal. which is quite on top at present. The letters Platt wrote re "the brigands" were highly forceful & spicy.
