Stran 59 - Widow, being sick in body, do make and declare this my last will and testament: First, I commit my body to be buried in the chancel of Liddington church.
Stran 125 - Indian children mingle in schools with those of the white colonists. A certain number chosen among the pupils who display the most intelligence learn music, chanting, the violin, flute, horn, violoncello, or other instruments. Those who distinguish themselves in the carpenters...
Stran 129 - Beneath these specious pretexts was undoubtedly a perfect understanding between the Government of Mexico and the leading men in California, that in such a condition of things the Supreme Government might absorb the Pious Fund, under the pretence that it was no longer necessary for missionary purposes, and thus had reverted to the State as a quasi escheat, while the coactors in California should appropriate the local wealth of the missions by the rapid and sure process of administering their temporalities.
Stran 120 - We love manhood ; and the Spanish pioneering of the Americas was the largest and longest and most marvellous feat of manhood in all history. It was not possible for a Saxon boy to learn that truth in my boyhood ; it is enormously difficult, if possible, now. The hopelessness of trying to get from any or all English...
Stran 123 - ... summoned. by the ringing of bells swung on limbs of trees ; presents of cloth and trinkets were given them to inspire them with trust, and thus a mission was founded. Two monks (never, at first, more) were appointed to take charge of . this cross and booth, and to win, baptize, convert, and teach all the Indians to be reached in the region. They had for guard and help a few soldiers, and...
Stran 124 - The building is a quadrilateral, four hundred and fifty feet square; the church occupies one of its wings; the facade is ornamented with a gallery. The building is two stories in height. The interior is formed by a court ornamented with fountains, and decorated with trees. Upon the gallery which runs around it open the dormitories of the monks, of the majors-domo, and of travellers, small workshops, schoolrooms, and storerooms.
Stran 129 - These laws (the secularization laws), whose ostensible purpose was to convert the missionary establishments into Indian pueblos, their churches into parish churches, and to elevate the christianized Indians to the rank of citizens, were, after all, executed in such a manner that the so-called secularization of the missions resulted only in their plunder and complete ruin, and in the demoralization and dispersion of the christianized Indians.
Stran 130 - All persons holding title to real estate, or in quiet possession of lands under a color of right, shall have those titles and rights guaranteed to them.
Stran 120 - ... believe that every other young Saxon-American loves fair play and admires heroism as much as I do, that this book has been written. That we have not given justice to the Spanish Pioneers is simply because we have been misled. They made a record unparalleled ; but our text-books have not recognized that fact, though they no longer dare dispute it. Now, thanks to the New School of American History, we are coming to the truth, — a truth which every manly American will be glad to know. In this...
