Jepson Field Book volume 30 page 86
Old Woman Springs - This is a good-looking oasis with alfalfa, a few orchard trees, a fig tree, old & large.  We are headed for Twenty-nine Palms and as there is a long stretch ahead without stations we stop here at noon to rest over night and give the animals a good feed.  The owners are Charles Martin & Swarthout. Martin is a fine-looking type of frontier cattleman, sixty years old with iron-gray hair.  He rides a good horse, wears a broad-brimmed hat, a revolver rests in plain view in his cartridge belt.  Swarthout has a refined speech and the manners of a gentleman.  "Martin has killed his man and has been in San Quentin." - J. H.  Manson  :::::::::  May 13, 1914.  alt. 3186 ft. No. 5946. Mohavea viscida Gray.  Corolla as if with 2 petals an upper and a lower, both penciled with fine dots in lines on a pale yellow or rather pale cream ground.  Upper lip 2-lobed, the lower shallowly 3-lobed.  The lobing of both suggest a strong erosulation of very broad petals. Stamens 2, connivent by their anthers above the slightly (at tip) arched style & entire stigma.  Lower lip  with strongly inflated palate  and a central  elevated  yellow crest with is slightly [ or better] short hairy and has a depression either side of it.  Stamens & style under a sort of arched ridg of upper lip.
