Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

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.
The annual meeting of the Texas State Historical Association
will be held at the University of Texas, Room 158, Austin, Texas,
May 8, at 3:00 p. m.
To Librarians and Others: The issue of THE QUARTERLY for
October, 1924, appeared as Volume XXIX, No. 2; it should be
Volume XXVIII, No. 2. The issue for January, 1925, appeared
as Volume XXIX, No. 3, on the outside cover; but is correctly
numbered on the first page as Volume XXVIII, No. 3.
