Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

The Quarterly of the Texas State Historical Association, Volume 2, July 1898 - April, 1899

Afairs of th e Association.


The index to Volume I of THE QUARTERLY has been prepared,
but it has been thought best to defer the printing of it until the
final number of Volume II appears. This will be the number for
April, 1899. The index will be so printed that it can be detached
and bound with Volume I by those members who have that volume
still unbound.
The appearance of the editor's name in this number of THE

carries with it no pecuniary compensation. The editor's reward
lies mainly in the hope that he is promoting the interests of his
chosen work, of the Association, and of the State of Texas. He will
strive to make THE QUARTERLY worthy of the Association and
the State.

second volume is complete, or until the next number has been is-
sued. After that, such libraries as desire its continuance and have
nothing to offer in the way of exchange, will be expected to sub-
In this connection, while there is no intention to advertise in
this Department, it may not be amiss to say THE QUARTERLY has
been well received, both within the State and beyond it. Many
