Alemany, "whose personality served to inspire both priests and people to their best efforts, was a character not often met in life. He had the pride not only of the Spaniard but of the Catalonian . . . But coupled with this spirit of the caballero was the humility of the saint. He was considered one of the finest horseman of early California . . . a king in the saddle, and only the breaking of his leg on one occasion caused him to give up his favorite mode of travel." [San Francisco Monitor, 1904]
