From A Catalogue of Books Printed by John Henry Nash at page 95: "Note: Ernest A. Wiltsee, Vice President of the California Historical Society, made extensive researches for several years on the controversial subject of Fremont's activities in California. Unearthing documents that had not been brought to light hitherto, he presents an excellent case to prove that Fremont was the direct, but obscured, agent of the Government in taking California in time to forestall the same action by the British. An important book for students of California history."
