AFFAIRS OF THE ASSOCIATION.
The memorial page in this issue serves as a reminder not only
that another Texas veteran is gone, but also that the Republic of
Texas will soon have passed beyond the memory of any living
man. Ex-Governor Lubbock, who was in his ninetieth year when
he died, was barely thirty when Texas became a State of the Union.
It was, of course, but natural that he should take a special inter-
est in the history of whose making he had seen so much. For
seven years he was one of the vice presidents of the Association,
and he was rarely absent from its meetings.
Ex-Governor Lubbock was a man of most exalted character,
which was evident in all his conduct, both public and private.
It is hoped that a suitable appreciation of him will be prepared
ere long for publication in THE QUARTERLY.
