The first English translation of a few chapters from the original publication. Zamarano 59 mistakenly puts the date of this translation to 1890. Father Serra was the founder of the mission and Father Palou was his companion and devoted friend. (Cowan p. 471; Graff 3178; HIll 1289; Howes P56; Zamarano 80: 59).
