THE BEXAR ARCHIVES lare now deposited in the vault ,of the Uni-
versity. Their classification has begun, and when it is finished they
will be more available for investigation; but the work is a tedious
one, and will consume a long time. The translation, which is a
still larger task, is also to be pushed as rapidly as possible, but
until the University ,can give more help for the purpose, it will go
on but slowly.
THE LAMxAR PAPERS.--The collection of documents made by Pres-
ident Lamar has been lately received by the State Librarian. Several
years ago these papers were placed by Mrs. Lamar in the hands of
Dr. J. W. Palmer, -of Baltimore, to be edited for publication, but
for some reason the plan was not carried out, and Mrs. Calder,
the daughter of President Lamar, has secured the return of the
papers, and has had them deposited for the time in the State capi-
tol building. The collector fills a box measuring some six or eight
cubic feet. No list nor general description of the papers has been
transmitted, so far as their present custodian is aware, but some
documents not known to exist elsewhere have been found among
them. President Lamar was a scholarly man, and knew what was
best worth gathering and preserving. It may be assumed, there-
fore, that the collection is of real value. rMore definite information
concerning it will be given in a future number of T E QUARTERLY.
