Images sent by David Rogers with comment on the two pages to the left from Marilyn's Tass history book.

Forget about my citation [below the illustration on the left found in this article] regarding that illustration in Marilyn’s book, for it was based on a miscommunication between Marilyn and myself.  In the text for Tassajara in the souvenir (hardback) edition of E. S. Harrison’s Monterey County Illustrated (1889), it states that “A cut of which will be found on the cover of the pamphlet [paperback] edition of this work.”   I asked Marilyn if the illustration in question was the one from Harrison’s text, and she said it was.  Later on I found the pamphlet edition of Harrison’s text at the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library, and the illustration was different, so Marilyn must have thought I was referring to something else. - David Rogers
