Having emigrated to California from New York in 1849, the experiences of his adventures there, personal and professional (he was both disbarred and then elected to the state legislature), are recounted in his Reminiscences, which he dictated in his later years. ""The book evinces devotion to the fact and energy of purpose, as well as some appreciation of humorous situations."": Dictionary of American Biography III:373.
