Quotation:
H. C. BAILEY
California in '53 : from the reminiscences of H.C. Bailey : manuscript, ca. 1900

"These bears were the greatest pork eaters I ever knew, and in addition, never objected to a young colt or calf, or a good melon patch. The average citizen, though he had no love for him, was willing to leave him alone, if Mr. Bear would do likewise. I knew of their killing only one man in our immediate vicinity. It happened a little more than a mile from our house."

Quotation:
JOAQUIN MILLER
Preface, True Bear Stories, 1900

"With his nose to the ground all the time, standing up only now and then to pull a wild plum or pick a bunch of grapes, or knock a man down if he must, he seems to me like some weary old traveler that has missed the right road of life and doesn’t quite know what to do with himself."
