NOTES AND FRAGMENTS.
A CORRECTION.-In an article entitled Landmarks Preserved by
the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, in the January QuAR-
TERLY, the chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution at
San Antonio is credited with having contributed twenty-five dol-
lars for the preservation of the old Spanish mission San Jose. The
Colonial Dames of America in the State of Texas were the first to
respond to the appeal made by the Daughters of the Republic of
Texas for aid in the preservation of these ancient buildings, and
it was they instead of the Daughters of the American Revolution
who made the contribution mentioned. It is encouraging that these
organizations have all expressed a desire to assist in the preserva-
tion of the only landmarks in Texas coeval with the period of his-
tory whose memory these societies were organized to perpetuate.
We hope for liberal assistance from them.
ADELE B. LOOSCAN,
Historian, Daughters of the Republic of Texas.
