HISTORICAL ABSTRACT OF SAN FRANCISCO

PREPARED AND PUBLISHED BY
OSCAR T. SHUCK
AUTHOR OF "BENCH AND BAR IN CALIFORNIA"
AND OF
"REPRESENTATIVE MEN OF THE PACIFIC."

IN THREE VOLUMES
Vol. I.

SAN FRANCISCO
1897.


To
Col. Daniel M. Burns,
First Secretary of State under the present Constitution, I beg leave, while he is far away in "Our Sister Republic," to inscribe this first volume of a history of the great city of which he is a distinguished citizen.
THE AUTHOR.

INTRODUCTORY

In the years close to the middle of the century, when, being connected with the press, I began to watch the current of events in the local world, the habit was formed of preserving notes of all that claimed the eye, as an aid in miscellaneous writing. These, which inevitably became more and more manifold and engaging, were a faithful guide and stay through a long and active period, and they have been supplemented to date. They are now arranged, it is believed, in the most convenient form for reference, that of the alphabet, and are published as deserving perpetuity and possessing universal interest.

O. T. S.

San Francisco, Cal., May 1, 1897.


Much important matter and some notable names, passed over in Vol. 1, for various reasons, will be found in the supplement at the end of vol. III.
