Jepson Field Book volume 21 page 38
Description:
Berkeley  "The Flora of California" Several of the unfriendly critics say I will not live to complete the job.  True I may die within a year or a month.  If it must be, be it so.  But the man who comes after me will be inspired to write him a Flora of California.  Surely he will not be inspired by the fact that I declined it. It is incredible, the resentment the work has produced in two or three quaters.  There is room for three or four floras of California - all interesting and all different.  On the other hand this is not :::::::::  March, 1910.  a task I would choose if any one else would put his hand to it.  If I regarded purely my own pleasure and good cheer I'd have a little herbarium in a ca_on with a wild hillside above so that I might taste sunshine and not fog, and hear the sound of running water and the call of quail in the chaparral.  Calycadenia truncata DC.  Coll by K. C. Lake Co, July, 1884, Marin Co. June 6, 1886; Sweetwater El Dorado Co; Edgewood (Shasta). - all seen in Cal. Acad Hb. by W.L.J.
