COMMUNICATION
BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA, June 3, 1919.
Editors of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly.
GENTLEMEN: I wish to correct an error in my article on The
Literature of California History, published in your April number.
Father Engelhardt's references to the "Santa Barbara Archives"
were in fact to the great archive of Franciscan materials at Santa
Barbara and not to files of the Bancroft Library. Without going
into detail to explain how my mistake occurred, I may say that
the documents in the Bancroft Library are copies, procured by
agents of Hubert Howe Bancroft, from the originals at Santa
Barbara. I may add, too, that my reference to Father Engel-
hardt's "subjectivity" was not intended in any way to reflect upon
his thoroughgoing honesty and accuracy as a historian.
Yours very truly,
CHARLES E. CHAPMAN.
