TO OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN
As a Christmas Gift for 1889
Dear Children: Of all the great men and women you may read of, we are sure the deeds of none will please and interest you more than those of your Grandparents. When the need came, you will see, no hardships were too great for them to bear, and were worth all they cost.
Now you enjoy lovely California homes; you cannot be too grateful to those who prepared the way for you; strive to make the world better for your living in it, as they have.
Mrs. R. C. Foster
As Another Gift for 1925
To the Grandchildren of the second generation, we are adding these true human documents and the diaries of the other trips and memoirs of their Pioneer days in early California, carrying on their mottos "to make the world better for having lived in it."
