Excerpt from For California, Vol. 2: A Monthly Publication "for Those Who Desire the Best There Is in Life"; October, 1905
After the land was bought and there was no retreat a reaction began. I would go and look at the great field where nothing was to be seen on the brown ear... th but some short sticks not as high as my knee, without a single leaf, then go home and toss and turn hour after hour at night, possessed by the thought that I had done a most unwise thing. If I slept, I dreamed of endless rows of tiny black twigs that would stand there year after year, silent witnesses to the folly of a woman who had wandered from her sphere and was being justly punished for it. When the rain fell and the warm sun began to shine again and the buds to swell, and finally when the tiny black twigs were covered with tender glistening leaves, my delight and pride were boundless, and I forgot my former doubts and despondency.
