Poppy & :Skip's excellent adventure - Three city Bob Dylan Italy Tour '09 The Spats by Jeff Picketing Historical Persoective The Stanley Cabin from Sherry Engberg photos by Bob Engberg The following letter describes memories of life at a Julian cabin between 1920 and 1968. Helen Stanley Smith wrote the letter to the new owner, Dudley Graham. Helen's parents,Sam and Florence Stanley, first owned the cabin. The Stanleys passed it on to their daughters, Helen Stanley Smith and Marian Stanley Batchelder. Another generation enjoyed years of happy times under the oaks in the little Julian cabin off Farley Road. The Stanleys' friends included many familiar Julian pioneers such as the Fletchers, Scripps, Sawdays, and Batchelders. Other family friends, such as my family, were often invited to come play in the snow or while away a warm summer day at their Julian cabin. Here is the letter Helen Stanley brought from Europe." Smith wrote in 1968: People get bogged down in Dear Dudley/ Unaccustomed Important Matters and dream as I am to sentimentality, I may about Going to the Cabin. But put this poorly. But I feel I should ff's too far and a weekend is too tell you that in making a contract short. There's wood to chop, to own this cabin you have water to carry, weeds to pull, assumed perhaps more than you gutters to clear realize. What you have here is Who will do it? Sam, of more than an acre of land and course; and he did. Always did two buildings. You have forty- and always recorded what he eight years of life, forty-eight did.

Painted kitchen window Helen and Marian played here, brought friends whose names are entered in the register Helen's and Marian's children played here, saw their first snow, and counted more stars than they had known there were. And the dogs, most of the dogs that have rived with us, came to sniff and dig in the woodpile for rats. Holidays we celebrated here, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July at the Frasers' with mountain people who brought currant cakes, salads, hand- cranked ice cream. People grow up. People who made mud pies and climbed trees bring their children and tell them, "This is where we played. I climbed this tree. I slept outside and heard coyotes." People get busy and tell their children, "We used to go to the cabin and slide down the big rock. We walked to Julian and had ice cream. We remember Mrs. Williams and the flowers she raised from bulbs Miss Scripps and door casing. Went to Weed Show in Julian. Nice weather Hi 84, Lo 52," he recorded. And did not write again because he died September third in the garden at home. Glee died and so did Gene and Maud and others who all came here and wanted to come back. And as I was saying, Dear Dudley, unaccustomed as I am to sentimentality, I may put this poorly, but I feel you should know that you have assumed perhaps more than you realize. Be kind to our ghosts and cherish what we have cherished. HS 4/19/68 Now another forty years has passed. The cabin still stands and holds many memories for the family and friends of the "new" owner, as well as those of us who have enjoyed it through the years. Experts say planting newly purchased plants during the late evening or on a cloudy or rainy day gives them a much better chance of surviving. Warning To Weed Whackers All the gardeners in your life will be crying next Spring. Daffodils have already been whacked and they may never bloom again. The plants need the energy from the green leaves to go back down to the bulbs; without that the bulbs die. Please leave the leaves until late June, when they are dry and yellow, before whacking them off. The Daffodils thank you! Be sure to put March 20 -21; 2010 on your calendar for Julian's 6th Annual Daffodil show to be held in the Town Hall. Banking : Checking ,, Savings Home Equity .
