214 The Southwestern Hlistorical Quarterly
1913" is the best part of the book. The principal fault to be found
with it is the partiality shown the Houston members of the Saen-
gerbund; after 1891 only those of the biennial meetings are de-
scribed which met at Houston. While the author is content to
present a purely chronological sketch, he brings to the subject
a fund of first hand information and shows an appreciation of
the cultural worth of music and song when fostered by a people.
The History of the Houston Turnverein and the account of the
German Day celebrations at Houston are also well written, but,
of course, are primarily of local interest; similar organizations
and events in other Texas cities are nowhere touched upon.
