world commerce. The reviewer questions the propriety of in-
cluding Chapter IX, "Confederate Exiles to Brazil," in this
study, since it is chiefly an historical sketch of the varying for-
tunes of colonies of disgruntled Confederates in Brazil that had
slight bearing if any on the diplomatic relations of the two
countries. Chapters X and XI, "From Empire to Republic in
Brazil" and "Recent Tendencies" give in forty-seven pages a
useful but not a definitive summary of the diplomatic relations
between the United States and Brazil from 1888 to 1918.
From the standpoints of content and mechanical make-up the

Panhandle, and by his charge upon an Indian encampment on
the Washita and the recapture of the German girls won for him-

the second time, the Medal of Honor. After service in the
Philippines he returned to Colorado, and while on the retired list
was made Adjutant General of that state at the outbreak of the
World War. He died April 22, 1923.
As is true of many reminiscences, these are frequently lack-
ing in coherence and the book is somewhat illogically divided.
Its three parts are entitled: "Memoirs of Major General Frank
D. Baldwin," "Leading Events in the Military Career of Gen-
eral Baldwin," and "Memoirs of Alice Blackwood Baldwin." The
first and third parts are by far the most interesting and valu-
