A vendor at the farmer’s market noticed June’s skill in choosing ripe fruits. Shouting over the noise, June shared her experiences on the ‘Frisco and Brine Shine. Emperor Norton—mayor of San Francisco—walked by and cringed at the “misuse” of his beloved city’s name. A policeman promptly arrested June. In the following trial, Moose, sold in Oahu and a recent arrival to San Francisco, testified that June had worked on a ship named ‘Frisco. Upon obtaining her freedom, June recommended Moose as a gardener for the Kingman estate.
“Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.”
