Life and labors of Father Junípero Serra
Though Palou's "Life and Apostolic Labors of the Venerable Father Fray Junipero Serra" is the first work dealing with the history of Alta California; and though it was originally published in the City of Mexico in 1787, it had never been translated for English readers. A few chapters from the original were translated into English and issued by the Reverend Father Adam, Vicar General of the Diocese of Monterey and Los Angeles, in the year 1890. In 1913, Professor C. Scott Williams under the supervision of George Wharton James translated Paulo’s work with Father Englehardt reviewing the manuscript for accuracy.
