Widow of Grandson of Noted Writer Relates Incident of Early California (Associated Press Leased Wire) HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 26,—Young Francla Bret Harte, in August of 1864, took a one-day leave from his Job with the Wells-Fargo Express agency at Sonora, Calif,, and rodo into the hllla toward Chinese camp to visit a friend's mining claim. His choice of a holiday was fortunate. Highwaymen that day halted tho San Francisco-bound express wagon, laden with newly mined gold for the United States mint, and killed the driver with whom Harte ordinarily rode as a helper. Widow of Grandson Talks Mrs, Lillian Bret Harte, widow of Harte's grandson, Richard Bret Harte, today related the incident, recorded In family chronicles. She believes with other mombera of the family that the author would have been killed with the wagon driver had he been on the trip. In that case there would have been no "Luck of Roaring Camp," no "Outcasts of Pokor Flat," nor any of the other Harto-authorod masterpieces of early short-story form, written mostly for California publications in the 60s and 70s. This month marked the observance by the. Harte family of tho one hundredth anniversary of tho author's birth. Mrs. Harte, herself a writer, presided at a celebration here. Most authorities assert that Harte was born on August 25, but th« author himself, declared Mrs. Harte, observed August 16 as his birthday. Ho was born in Albany, N. Y.. in 1836, and not in 1839, as stated by reference books, she said. Mrs. Harte never saw the author herself, but she treasures mementoes left by Harte to her lato husband. There are anecdotes, too, th» family likes to recall. Once concerns Ethel Bret Harte, one of Harte's four children, who now lives at Ojal, Calif. When Harte went east In the 70s to fulfill a $10,000 yearly writing contract with tho Atlantic Monthly, his family went with him. Chooses Small Town "He disliked to be disturbed by callers when he was writing," Mrs. Harte* related. "For that reason he chose to live in a small New Jersey town, some distance from New York. "In spite of his instructions that he was not to be bothered, unannounced visitors appeared often in his study. "Finally, ho found that his very young daughter, Ethel, was admitting them for bribes of candy and cakes."
