Sawtelle Letter

Lewis R. Jenkins of the celebrated 4th Iowa Cavalry, one of the best regiments in the field, passed away recently at the Home. He was an old time Santa Cruz carpenter with whom I labored many a long weary day, wrestling boards and nails. His home was out on River St. toward the tannery. His son George, from San Diego and wife and daughter from Sacramento, were in attendance at his funeral.
