Book Reviews and Notices
Agricultural capacities. By Corinne Montgomery. New York:
E. Winchester. 1845.
"The book is insufferably dull, and can only be tolerated in the
anxiety which exists for information connected with the southern
El Dorado of Texas."
The above title and the criticism appeared in the first number
of De Bow's Review, January, 1846 (I, 95). The writer has seen
no copy of this book. Is the biographical portion of "Texas and
her Presidents" identical with "The Presidents of Texas ?"
The dedication to Verse Memorials by Mirabeau B. Lamar
(1857) is, "To Mrs. William L. Cazneau-so favorably known to

In Memory of Marcellus E. Kleberg is the brief title of an octavo
volume of ninety-five pages, containing "A record of telegrams,
letters, resolutions and memorial addresses received by the family,
and newspaper comments upon the death of Hon. M. E. Kleberg
of Galveston, Texas, . . . together with extracts from some
of his notable speeches and public addresses."
"Rodriguez Memoirs of Early Texas" (San Antonio. 1913)
is the title of an interesting brochure of seventy-six pages written
by the late Judge J. M. Rodriguez, of Laredo, Texas, who died
February 22, 1913. Judge Rodriguez was descended from one of
the Canary Island settlers of San Antonio, and he himself was
born there in 1829. After the Civil War he moved to Laredo,
and for thirty-five years was county judge of Webb County.
Though printed primarily for the family and friends of Judge
Rodriguez, the booklet will be interesting to others. It begins with
the writer's recollection of the siege of San Antonio by the Texans
in November, 1835.
