tion in South Carolina is fairly complete, though no steps have been
taken toward publication; North Carolina as early as 1882 published
four volumes, aggregating 2548 pages, but the work was carelessly
done and in some cases deliberately falsified; Alabama has gone far
toward getting its records in shape; and some attention has been
given to the work by Mississippi; no report was received from Vir-
ginia and Missouri, but the other States make a very poor showing.
The War Department has determined to take up the work of pub-
lishing these muster rolls so far as they can be furnished by the sep-
arate States, and letters have been addressed by the Department to
the respective governors requesting their energetic co-operation.
The work, of collection must be done by the States.
The remainder of the number, except the reviews and notices, con-
sists of documents: (1) The Duane Letters (continued); (2) A
Southern Sulky Ride (concluded); (3) General Joseph "Martin
(continued); (4) Texas Revolutionary Sentiment (continued)-
these documents consist mainly of the proceedings of public meet-
ings and committees of safety during 1835, and exhibit the develop-
ment of the revolutionary sentiment with the reasons therefor; (5)
Early Quaker Records in Virginia (concluded).
At the meeting of the American Historical Association in Decem-
ber, 1901, a committee of Southern members was appointed to pre-
pare a report on History Teaching in the South. Their report was
published in the School Review, February, 1903, and in his review
of it the editor of the Publications says: "It is to be regretted
though that the committee did not openly frown on the weak pre-
sumption of a half dozen or so institutions in trying to give grad-
uate courses and degrees. The Johns Hopkins alone, south of Ma-
son and Dixon's line, is competent to do this." As to the degrees,
THE QUARTERLY emphatically says amen; but if Dr. Meriwether
means exactly what he says about graduate "courses," THE QTTAR-
TERLY begs the personal privilege of explaining that the University
of Texas possesses both the competency and facilities for giving
graduate history courses. The proof of this is the recognition ac-
corded these courses by the graduate institutions of the North and
East. This, of course, must not be understood to mean that the
University of Texas confers the degree of Ph. D.
