Jepson Field Book volume 14 page 62
Kew, Surrey Dear Dr. Simmons: -  A Merry Christmas to you Sir! and many more of them! A Happy New Year with all health and prosperity! These greetings are sent you from the Land of Fog, H-less Speech and Marvelous Economies by that same small barefoot boy (albeit, now taller grown) who ran to open the farm-gate for the Presiding Elder of the sorrel nag.  Right welcome was he! Yea thrice welcome, for he was not only our Methodist Preacher but our hearty good friend, bringing to us news from the world beyond the long lanes of the valley, lading us with fun and stories, good cheer and wholesome :::::::::  Dec. 9, 1905. advice. Breaking in without ceremony upon the dull routine of the heavy farm life and leaving us with freshened hopes and quickened aspirations and ambitions! It has come to me in some way that you are rewriting the History of Southern Methodism on the Pacific Coast.  That is well.  But I wish that you might write the history of your own life, of the part that you had taken in the progress of civilization in our beloved California and record a thousand interesting personal experiences, scenes in various counties, habits and customs of the people.  Can you not do this?  It would be read and reread, not only by Methodists but by Californians generally for it would have the widest interest!  With kindest regards, Faithfully yours, Willis L. Jepson
