Jepson Field Book volume 28_68
Berkeley [Sept. 30, 1914] The question has been put to me about difference in sentiment towards the two groups of early scientific men and explorers in California. I answer: we revere the memory of Albert Kellogg. He was a Californian. The state was to him natural, lovable and familiar. So Bolander, Bloomer, Gibbins and the rest. But Brewer, Whitney, King and the rest were different. They came here with different feelings-feelings of superiority, of patronage, of condescension. To them the state was wild and untamed, it was crude and unnatural. It was not and could not be to them home. They were always aliens.  ::::::::: [Berkeley] Sept. 30, 1914. Lemmon, J.G. on Mt. [Mount] Lyell, Aug. 19, 1878. See his printed label sub Calyptridium nudum  -Martynia proboscidea. Brought from Ignacio Valley n. [north] of Walnut Creek by Mrs. Kate J. Stirring. Says it grew freely amongst the corn and melon plants.  -Ribes. I have been fussing with the Californian material. The species makers have hit hardest Ribes menziesii. Some of the specific segregates will have to stand but many are quite worthless and not even of varietal value. Ribes hystrix Eastw. is maintained by Cov. and Britt. on the ground of its sessile glands on undersides of leaves and yellow ?spines?]. But R. menziesii
