Jepson Field Book volume 66 page 116
The Drouth Years As a lad I well remember the anxiety for rain as the winter wore on, an anxiety that deepened into alarm. The neighbors, meeting each other on the roads, talked of nothing else. In the village the talk always came to that. Everywhere stretched the dry fields, the brown parched  hills now forbidding and hopeless as they lay on the valley edge. And there was always, the heartsick sound, the lowing of hungry cattle, now faint, now irregular, at times rising to a pleading chorus flung on the empty air.  Cattle Brands -cf. first brand in Solano County, June, 1940, issue of Pacific Stockman. -Sidney Walker_s brand was _SID,_ acc. Max Brazelton, Nov. 19, 1940.  ::::::::: -cont. from p. 115- (his given name I have forgotten) had come into possession of the Phelan ranch (on which he had been living). My cousin Nora Gray says that this Clark is one of Alonzo_s sons. She says further that _Alonzo and his wife made good_ and paid off their house. _Alonzo_s family were the only ones of the whole family that had learned the true value of money and how to use it wisely._ _ Jan. 17, 1935.  -New Englanders. Two women, traveling, and of course by wagon, came to the house and asked for food, for a meal. My mother went to the kitchen to prepare some refreshments. In the sitting room they surveyed the furniture and everything in the room and expressed themselves freely by sneering remarks about Missourians. I was so small, they ignored my presence but young as I was I was stirred to deep hatred of them because of their attitude towards my mother. Disregarding me that I had no eyes to see, ears to hear.
