Affairs of the Association.


The midwinter meeting of the Association was held at Baylor
University on January 5. In the absence of Judge Reagan, Hon.
Oscar H. Cooper, President of that University, presided over the
meeting; -and Dr. George P. Garrison delivered a brief address,
explaining the object of the Association, and describing and dis-
cussing the various collections of documents-in both Texas and
Mexico-which contain the unwritten history of Texas.
The program, as announced, consisted of The Difficulties of a
Mexican Revenue Officer in Texas, by Eugene C. Barker; The
Picturesque Side of Protestantism in the Republic, by Miss Eliza-
beth West, and The Alamo Monument, by C. W. Raines. The first
of these papers will be found in this number ,of the QUARTERLY; the
last two were read by title. President Cooper, too, read a letter
that had been written by himself to Governor Roberts-and
returned to him with the latter's endorsement,-reviewing the his-
tory of the bill organizing the University of 'Texas. The letter
forms an interesting chapter in the educational history 'of the State.
After the conclusion of the program, a business meeting was
held, and more than a hundred members elected to the Association.
