“Since 1769 the work of the Franciscan friars has drawn people to the California missions, some for conversion, some for food and shelter, some for rest, and more than a few out of idle curiosity. I have come to Mission San Luis Rey at one time or another for all of these reasons, and each time have gone away refreshed. Most recently San Luis Rey has been the source of archival materials for a full-length history of the mission, from which this small book is condensed.”
