Contents: Thomas Oliver Larkin (September 16, 1802 - October 27, 1858) was an early American emigrant to Alta California and a signer of the original California Constitution. He was the United States' first and only consul to the California Republic.
Few facts regarding Larkin's early years are available. Most of those that exist are embodied in his own diary, "My Itinerary," and a letter from North Carolina written in 1831. Both manuscripts are printed in this book and have been edited and carefully footnoted.
The last section of the book, "Building the Larkin House" is an accurate account of the cost, time and material necessary for the construction of the two-story adobe Larkin home in Monterey. This compilation is one of the few of its kind, for facts on the building of early California adobes are scarce.
