Excerpt from The Bay of San Francisco, Vol. 1: The Metropolis of the Pacific Coast and Its Suburban Cities; A History
The occurrences of this memorable journey are fully recorded in the diary of Father Crespi, and in the memoranda kept'by the officers of the expedition. There... is no need in giving them here in detail. Let it suffice that the expeditionists for some inexplicable reason failed to identify the port of Monte rey. They actually looked out upon the bay and harbor, on the 30th of September, and passed on without knowing it. Search was made in every direction for the much-desired haven without success. In the course of their explorations, however, they recognized at a distance Point Reyes, and encamped near the beach at the southern extremity of the Eu senada de los Farallones. The priests now thought that their Seraphic Father, Saint Francis, had brought them to his port, not knowing that there was another and greater San Francisco, the discovery of which was not yet, though not far distant.
