The Texas State Historical Association has received as a
courtesy of the Secretaria de La Defensa Nacional two volumes
entitled La Correspondencia de Augustin de Iturbide despues
de la Proclamaci6n del Plan de Iguala.
These are valuable source materials to the historian. Vit6
Alessio Robles has prepared the foreword and introduction
which add to the value.
Ex-Lieut. C. Stewart Peterson has sent the Association a
copy of his biography of Admiral John A. Dahlgren, Father of
Naval Ordnance. The book is dedicated "to the unknown Amer-
ican sailors who died in all the wars of our nation." The intro-
duction was written by Rear Admiral Belknap.

edited by Lue Adams Kress of Caldwell, Idaho.
The Historical Commission of the City of Charleston, South
Carolina, has issued a unique and interesting pamphlet en-
titled The Charleston Almanack and Register for the Year

after the almanac of a century ago which was a valued posses-
sion of every household.
The Kentucky State Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky,
has published a historical narrative of the news and period-
ical press of Frankfort, Kentucky, 1795-1945. This should be
valuable to students of the history of Kentucky.

Maryland, 1766-68. This is Volume 61 of the Archives of Mary-
land, edited by J. Hall Pleasants.
