In closing his "Three Years in California," Mr. Colton pays the following tribute to his fireside friends of good old Monterey: David Spence, from the hills of Scotland; W. E. P. Hartnell, from England, the best linguist in the country; Don Manuel Dias, a native of Mexico; James McKinley, from the Grampian Hills; Don Manuel Jimeno, once secretary of state; Milton Little; Don Jose Abrego; J. P. Leese, from Missouri, whose wife was the sister of General M. G. Vallejo; James Watson, born on the Thames; Charles Wolter of German origin; Governor Pulacio, from Lower California; J. F. Dye; James Stokes, from England; Senor Soveranez, whose saloon is lit by eyes bright as nuptial tapers, and where the Castilian flows soft as if warbled by a bird; Padre Ramirez, and the Rev. S. H. Wiley.

Monterey lost one of its most cherished ladies, when Mrs. Thomas O. Larkin took her departure. Here for eighteen years she had lent a charm to its society. She was the first lady from the United States that settled in California.
