The Southwestern Historical Quarterly
the campaign of Diego Ortiz Parilla of 1759, complete reports
of the San Xavier, San Saba, and Nueces River mission enter-
prises, several previously unknown diaries of explorations in Texas,
including those of Bernardo de Miranda to the Los Almagres
mines in 1755 and of Pedro de Rabago y Theran in 1756, plans
for the opening up of communication between Texas and New
Mexico, new material on the settlement of San Fernando de B6xar
(San Antonio), and some material on Coahuila. Several inter-
esting maps, of value for the history of Texas, were obtained.
These documents will completely clear up several chapters in
Texas history that have previously been obscure and known only
through fragmentary material.
A prize of $200 will be awarded by the American Historical
Association in 1915 for the best unpublished monograph in mili-
tary history submitted to the committee before September 1, 1915.
The monograph must be based upon independent and original in-
vestigation into some field of the military history of the United
States, preferably of the Civil War. It must be a distinct con-
tribution to knowledge, must (1) be based upon exhaustive re-
search, (2) conform to the canons of historical criticism, (3) be
presented in scientific form, (4) contain exact references to sources
and secondary works, and (5) be accompanied by a full critical
bibliography. Correspondence relative to the prize should be ad-
dressed to Captain A. L. Conger, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
