BOOK REVIEWS AND NOTICES.
Among other documents lately received by the librarian of the
Association is a reprint made by A. Turner of Houston's official
report of the battle of San Jacinto (pp. 16). Although undated,
it seems to have been published at Gonazles in 1874. It is the gift
of Mrs. Julia Miller, of Gonzales.
Mr. Lawrence S. Taylor, of Nacogdoches, sends the Association
an interesting pamphlet entitled A History of the Action of the
Political and Civil authorities and citizens relating to the land
office at Nacogdoches, under the jurisdiction of Charles S. Taylor,
Commissioner appointed by the Government of Coahuila and Texas
(Nacogdoches, Carraway's Print, 1901, pp. 14). This pamphlet
contains copies of a number of documents the originals of which

Taylor, and which were published to serve as evidence of Mr.
Charles S. Taylor's appointment as land commissioner, and of his
official record in that capacity. It is of special interest in that it
contains a half-tone engraving of Mr. Charles S. Taylor. Along
with other matter, it contains also a list of 176 titles issued by
Reconstruction and the Ku Klux Klan, by T. W. Gregory, a

son, in the Cen ury for July, 1884, and "The Ku Klux Move-
noent," by William Garrott Brown, in the Atlantic for May, 1901.
