74 Texas Historical Association Quarterly.
ber of THE QUARTERLY were read before the Association. Three
or four hundred names were added to the list of members and a few
to the list of Fellows, and a Publication Committee was elected, as
the Constitution directs. The surviving veterans of San Jacinto
and previous battles, together with ex-Governor 0. M. Roberts,
I-Ion. John H. Reagan, Colonel Guy M. Bryan, Colonel John S.
Ford, Mrs. Julia Lee Sinks, Mrs. Anson Jones, and Mrs. A. J.
Briscoe, were elected honorary life members.
It is hoped that the Association will stimulate the production of
much historical matter of real worth for presentation at its meet-
ings, and it is intended to publish such matter, as well as original
documents, as fast as the finances of the Association will allow.
Original articles on any period of Texas history, or on any subject
connected with Texas history, will be gladly received; a number of
such papers will be read before the Association at each meeting.
It is also hoped to ascertain the present location, ownership, con-
dition, etc., of the vast mass of MSS. now in the hands of private
persons in Texas, and, if possible, to secure for the Association pos-
session of the originals. Suitable fire-proof vaults will be provided
as soon as possible, where such papers as the Association shall ac-
quire may be safely stored. Private diaries, family letters, journals
of travel, old newspapers, genealogical notices, etc., etc., are of quite
as much value in recovering the history of Texas as are state papers
and public documents. Members of the Association are especially
urged to report to the Secretary any information which they may
have concerning such documents.
The Association also hopes to acquire a library and museum. It
has already made a good beginning. Books and historical relics
will be gratefully received, and it is especially desired that every
Texas author should present to the Association a copy of his works.
Here’s what’s next.
