1895. Bret Harte's witty, sometimes heart-rending tales of frontier California earned him acclaim during the 1860s as the new prophet of American letters. His books, The Luck of Roaring Camp, The Outcasts of Poker Flat and Mliss, helped establish the foundations of western American fiction. Clarence begins: As Clarence Brant, President of the Robles Land Company, and husband of the rich widow of John Peyton, of the Robles Ranche, mingled with the outgoing audience of the Cosmopolitan Theater, at San Francisco, he elicited the usual smiling nods and recognition due to his good looks and good fortune.
