Next time: There go the lovers.

QUOTATIONS:

  1. Herbert Howe Bancroft: “I have no hesitation in pronouncing Pattie’s complaints of ill-treatment grossly exaggerated.”
  2. Fr. Zephyrin Engelhardt: “It seems that young Pattie, or more probably the man who wrote his narrative, had an unreasoning hatred of Catholics and Spaniards.”
  3. Richard Batman: Pattie’s smallpox “numbers are impossible, for by his claim he vaccinated more people than actually lived in California.”
