"Spanish Ranch Letters"
A selection of letters from San Franciscan Theodore "Teddy" Dierks and Ramon Lugea from 1940 through 1956. Dierks as a young man had been encouraged by Jules Altube of the Spanish Ranch to stay in Tuscarora in 1902 as a treatment for Dierks' tuberculosis. Dierks struck up a friendship with Ramon Lugea, a Basque immigrant on the ranch, which was renewed through this exchange of letters starting around 1940. Compiled by Edna B. Patterson.
