This Castilian spent his entire career from 1812 in San Diego and inland. Things didn't change quickly in his career, but when this Spanish colony became the Mexican Republic, the skeptical cleric refused to say the pledge of allegiance to the new constitution unless he could add some clauses about his conscience. That wouldn't have worked in my school. Our mission "asistencia," or mission station, was well established by this time, and so the last holdouts, the wrinkliest and most leathery of the natives, were finally disposed to try the new religion, just in case this Jesus person was for real, along with the hellfire factor. These natives had known how to sayno, and emphatically. In fact, their language was called "Mau" by missionaries because that was the word for "no". But now, in their golden years, it was time for these senior citizens instead to say "aha, or "saa", for yes or OK. On this autumn day, the good padre had eleven women to baptize. Only two were young; the others were between sixty and eighty-eight years old. Older folks often did not speak Spanish, just as in remote Mexican towns today. by Albert Simonson Half of the male baptisees were over seventy, an age when some temptations blessedly lessen. Promiscuity was not a sin in the native culture, and kids were welcome, even with uncertain paternity. If we take the same week three years later, he baptized six "heathens," all but one over sixty- eight. The ripest were ninety- two and ninety-four, in need of afterlife insurance. These hardy natives were lucky to live in a healthful environment with good nutrition. Since this was 100% Indian country at the time, they were not yet stricken by the ravages of European diseases, alcohol, pesticide- laced groceries and Big Macs with fries and shake. Besides, you can't be a couch potato without a couch. They did have a mildly alcoholic mountain cherry wine, and the Santa Ysabel vineyards for "sacramental" wine were just getting their roots into the fertile irrigated soil. Those mission grapes made "abominable" wine, according to a US Army diarist, which favored sobriety. Decades later, a "grog shop" was opened on the Moretti property to the north (a beautiful large meadow along the descent to Lake Henshaw). It offered potent spirits to squatters, rancheros, drifters, and vaqueros. Natives got lots of fresh air and exercise. I have tried to keep up with gaily dressed Maya women up volcanic hillsides, which taught me two things: a) it's hard to keep up, and b) their legs stay very shapely, even when old. And, c) they don't need fragrances when sweaty. And they are really sweet women. Scholars argue crankily about the good and bad of missions, but the Santa Ysabel mission venture was a clear success as long as the church and natives had control. It had a greater population of converts than the mother mission in San Diego [called Nuestra Senora del Pilar de Nipaguay]. Martin and Sanchez led the impressive building of both mission quadrangles. I'm impressed also by his signature which ends in a tangle like a premonition of my cell phone charger cord after the cat has diddled with it. We read from the mission history by Zephyrin Engelhardt, published in 1920: "Truly, Santa Ysabel had become the consolation of the padres at a time when consolation was sorely needed." Amen to that.

The film was brought to the Historical Society's attention by the Wild and Scenic Festival, when Mr Roberts approached them with the idea of screening it in their festival. Nancy Kramer contacted the Historical Society and the plans were hatched to make an event of it. Mr Richard M. Roberts has graciously agreed to provide the film and host the event, including providing some background and history. It is hoped that the Society can obtain a copy of the film for their archive of Julian history. There are no guarantees this will be anything more than what it appears - a fun night at the movies.
