Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 70
few moments I was introduced to Miss Williams, a mature woman, who said that she had been a student of mine. It seems that Miss Williams has been working up the vigilante period on notes of her father_s life in the History Department or in the Bancroft Library. _ Jan. 3, 1932. The above is interesting because there is a hazy tradition in my mind that our Vaca Valley redwood lumber came from Bodega! And yet I did not know there were any Redwood trees at Bodega, that is, quite near. On Charter Day, 1933, I sat at luncheon at the President_s House next to Mrs. Gregg Earl who said that her father_s name was Ford, that he started a redwood mill at Bodega in gold days; was a partner of Williams (see p. 69). Did I make a mistake in the name Graham, or is Graham a sister?  ::::::::: Persistence of the Native Flora in Vaca Valley. This spring of 1932 I was much struck by the persistence of certain native species along fence lines, species that, otherwise, would have been extinguished by cultivation. Lathyrus californicus is frequent on fence lines at Little Oak. Echinocystis fabacea is especially abundant this spring, hanging its drapery of foliage over the wires for yards and yards. It is likely that its seeds are gathered and stored by squirrels, and in this way the species is spread. Or possibly Blue Jays may handle the seeds. Weeds in Vaca Valley. See F.B. 36:151. 1:180 Persistence of native plants in Vaca Valley, F.B. 36:48. Again this summer I noticed the great amount of Echinocystis fabacea on the orchard fence along the lane. There is also much of it in the grain fields where it must have persisted since aboriginal days _ Jul, 1933. There is a great patch of Sambucus glauca coming up in Dickie field opp. [opposite] Little Oak gate. _ Apr. 1934.
