the "pony express" from Shreveport-and the "Extras" are the
subjects of reminiscence.
A reader wants to know what the "R" stands for in Hardin R.
Runnels's name. Inquiry among oldtimers brought the answer
"Dick" or Richard. This information is confirmed by his nephew,
Mr. Howell W. Runnels, of Texarkana, and by Moses T. Run-
nels's Genealogy of Runnels and Reynolds families in America.
Under the title "Some loose leaves of Texas history," Mr.
Harry T. Warner prints in the Houston Post, of December 7,
1919, items selected from files of the Houston Telegraph of 1837
and 1838.
Mr. Ben C. Stuart publishes in the Galveston News of Novem-
ber 23, 1919, an article on smuggling Africans into Texas during
the period from 1816 to 1838.
