For the record

Mexican California: A June 29 article incorrectly reported that gold was found in 1849 at Sutter’s Mill; it was found in 1848. A sidebar box stated that Pio Pico became the first native-born governor of Alta California under Mexican control in 1832. The first native-born governor of Mexican Alta California was actually Luis Antonio Arguello, who took office in 1822.
