whit worse than those of his white brother. Of especial interest
are letters from Albert Pike and E. Kirby Smith to Stand Watie
calling upon him to hold his people true to their loyalty to the
Confederate Cause and promising to defend the Cherokees against
attack from the Federals. The last letter in the series is an offer
from the Federal government to make treaties of peace with all
the Cherokees who had fought in the Southern Army. The Uni-
versity of Oklahoma has recently been fortunate in securing a large
collection of Stand Waite Papers. Dr. Edward Everett Dale, of
the Department of History in that institution, will contribute to
THE QUARTERLY shortly an article on "Some Cherokee Letters" in
which he will make available to Texan readers additional letters
and documents concerning this remarkable man.
