cidn de Memorias de Nueva Espaiia in the Nation of May 30, 1901,

The October number of the American Historical Review (Vol.
VII, No. 1) contains articles by an able corps of writers on a wide
range of subjects. Goldwin Smith, in The Age of Homer, aims to

Maitland, in his Domesday Book and Beyond. Charles W. Colby,
in The Jesuit Relations, reviews editor Thwaites's great work and
discusses critically the historical value of the sources in question.
