BOOK REVIEWS AND NOTICES.
The leading article of the January number (Vol. VI, No. 1) of
Publications of the Southern History Association is a review of
The Virginia Literary Museum, a magazine published from June,
1829, to June, 1830, by the faculty of the University of Virginia.
The rest of the number is devoted to documentary material and to
book reviews. The first document describes the discovery of Lake
Scuppernong (Phelps), in North Carolina. The next set consists
of three letters from General Joseph Martin to Patrick Henry. And
students of Texas history will be interested in the publication of a
considerable mass of documents, begun in this number, on the early
stages of the Texas Revolution.
The main articles in the January number (Vol. VII, No. 2) of
The American Historical Review are: An Undeveloped Function,
by Chas. Francis Adams, this being the presidential address deliv-
ered before the last meeting of the American Historical Associa-
tion; The Credibility of Early Roman History, by Samuel B. Plant-
ner; Studies in the Sources of the Social Revolt in 1881, I-IV, by
George Kriehn; and A British Privateer in the American Revolu-
tion, by Henry H. Howland. The documents printed are Papers
of Sir Charles Vaughan. The department of the Review devoted to
book reviews increases in value with successive issues. In this num-
ber sixty pages are occupied by the leading reviews, fifteen by minor
notices and fifteen more by the department of Notes and News,
which is also largely made up of book notices. The high character
and value of these reviews are assured by the well-known names
subscribed to the leading ones.
By its frequent publication of careful translations of original
documents, Out West (formerly known as The Land of Sunshine)
is making its files a valuable source book of Southwestern history.
The January number contains an important source hitherto unpub-
lished in English. It is a critical translation of a letter from Don
Miguel Costans6, dated at Mexico, October 9th, 1772, transmitting
