Excerpt from An Illustrated History of Sonoma County, California: Containing a History of the County of Sonoma From the Earliest Period of Its Occupancy to the Present Time

The year following, on September 17th, under the direction of Commandante Moraga, the presidio of San Francisco was duly inaugurated amid the firing of cannons, ringing Of bells and all the formalities usual to typify absolute Spanish possession. The San Carlos had just arrived, and Captain Quiros, Canizares and Re ville, master and mate, participated in the lay ing of the corner-stone of this the future metropolis of the Pacific coast. Something over one hundred persons were present on that occasion. Right then and there it became a fixed finality that civilization held the keys to the Golden Gate to the Pacific coast. In order to punctuate this so as to rivet the attention of the reader, we borrow the language of a writer in the Overland Monthly who says: On that same 17th of September, on the other side of the continent, Lord Howe's Hessian and British troops were revelling in the city of New York. We might supplement this with the observation that if it took from 1776 to 1823 for Spanish occupation to extend its lines from San Fran cisco to Sonoma, it should somewhat break the force of carping criticism in reference to the time consumed by Moses and the children of Israel in their emigration from Egypt up to the land of Canaan. But in this we anticipate history.
