Overview
Excerpt from The Life of the Late Rear-Admiral John Drake Sloat of the United States Navy: Who Took Possession of California and Raised the American Flag at Monterey on July 7th, 1846

Nor is our Brother wholly gone from us here below; since his in fluences survive, the thoughts he uttered still live, and the effects of his action and exertion can never cease while the universe continues to exist. He has become a part of the Great Past, which gives Law to the Present and Future, and he still lives a real life, in the thoughts, the feelings and the afi'ections of those who knew and loved him. The arm that wielded the sword is now but dust.
