The Furrowed Land -cf. Old-time Days in Vaca Valley, p. 123.  Selected Poems -_April,_ John Finley, Jr. (Atlantic Mo. [Monthly]), p. 503. About 1929 (2 or 3 years earlier or later). -Edward Rowland S.K., poems by. -Love of Nature among the Romans. Sir A. Geike. London, 1912.  The Native Trees -Cordwood from the Hardwood Trees of the Vaca Hills. cf. letter to J.M. Brazelton in Jepson Correspondence, Nov. 26, 1940. -I have noticed little windfall, in the hills, of native trees. The woodland is a somewhat open always mixed stand. The hurricane ruined planted forests of New England suffered terribly in the storm of 1938 because of following the German method _ evenly ranked masses of trees all of one species in a given area and of the same age. It were better to have natural forests of mixed species and all ages. cf. Science, 10-7-38 _ in the Supplement, p. 10. (Separate: W. Shepard.). ::::::::: Native Trees -When driving through the Santa Ynez River Valley in April, 1938 (cf. Field Book, 58:431) the Valley Oak trees were just bursting into leaf _ not the dark green leafage of summer that [is] so familiar through the years, but a foliage silvery-gray as the wind ran over it and a little suggestive of willow leaves under the trade winds. This phenomenon is one also of early spring in Vaca Valley. It is a brief, a fleeting phase, - but something about it stirs deeply seated or rarely touched feelings as if far eon or ancient times were momentarily revived for a few brief days. Is the spring the time when ancientry is for a moment blazoned forth? Is it just a few plants that betray the hallmark of ancient times and these mostly annuals?
