The county seat, is picturesquely situated on the hills overlooking the Straits of Carquinez. Since the railroad has found them the people have taken a new start in life. The CPRR people propose establishing an extensive ferry here to convey trains from Sacramento across the "straits" en route to San Francisco.

While at Martinez we were the recipient of many favors from Dr EF Hough, of Hough's hotel, a pioneer hotel man on this coast.
