Publisher's note: The papers on California and the Missions, by the author of "Ramona," which are included in this volume were first published in 1883, and afterwards reprinted with some European travel sketches in 1886, the volume bearing the title of "Glimpses of Three Coasts." It has been frequently suggested that the California articles should be published in a separate volume, and they now reappear with illustations by Henry Sandham, who visited California with Mrs. Jackson when she was accumulating material for "Ramona." Mrs. Jackson's descriptions and the aritst's illustrations now possess a special interest from the fact that the restorations of late years have materially altered the Mission buildings and other places here pictured and described.
