Jepson Field Book volume 21 page 26
Description:
Ukiah Carl Purdy says: There is a great difference amongst ca_ons as to whether the air circulates or not.  If the air moves in a ca_on it is a protection of course to fruits.  But there are ca_ons where the air is dead - where the frost strikes and lies heavily like snow.  And ice.  Such ca_ona are so cold, heavy and damp that no horticulture is possible.  Flagg's ca_on may be one of the other. - Vancouveria leaves and Berberis aquifolium leaves grown by Purdy and shipped to S. F. for funeral wreath make-up. :::::::::  Feb. 11, 1910. Met Carl Purdy and introduced him to Dr. A. W. Ryder. Ditto Colonel La Motte. Ditto Wilcox.  Then said Ryder: What a remarkable collection of friends you have!  That makes three great characters I have met today!  I told him about Wilcox.  How he left Berkeley and a finely paying profession to live the life he loved up here in the wooded country.  Ryder listned comtemplatively: How cheap such a life makes that of _ with his struggles and scheming and plottings to get along! _ Conscientiously I struck this name out ! in 1910.  The name was "Benjie"! = B. I. W. (1930)
