NOTES AND FRAGMENTS.
Mr. W. R. Smith, who holds a fellowship in history for the year
1898-9 from Columbia University, will work on the colonial his-
tory of South Carolina. He expects to go to Columbia about the
first of August, in order to begin work.
Mr. W. F. McCaleb, who 'was mentioned in THE QUARTERLY for
April as having been awarded a traveling fellowship by the Uni-
versity of Chicago, is now in Mexico. Mr. I. J. Cox, of the San
Antonio Academy, will work with him during the summer. Their
ultimate destination is the City of Mexico, where Mr. McCaleb
expects to spend most -of the year, but it is their intention to make
stops more lor less lengthy at other places in which there are
archives 'of value for the history of 'the Southwest, especially at
Chihuahua, Saltillo, and Quer6taro. They are traveling on bicycles,
and will doubtless learn much of Mexico as it is, as well as of S.outh-
western history, before their return to Texas.
Mr. L. G. Bugbee is spending his vacation at work in the Bexar
archives at San Antonio. These archives include a very large
amount 'of material for the history of Texas previous to the Revo-
lution, 'of which but little use has hitherto been made. Perhaps
THE QUARTERLY will be able, before very much longer, to publish
a sufficient description of them to show the nature and value of
their contents.
Professor Garrison has announced as the subject of the graduate
course in history in the State University for 1898-9, "The Texas
Revolution." It is his intention to spend the summer in gathering
