The Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Texas Governors' Wives. By Pearl Cashell Jackson. (Austin:
E. L. Steek, 1915. Pp. 156. Illustrated. $2.00 net.)
The twenty-three sketches composing this book were first pub-
lished in the San Antonio Express. They are well written, rep-
resent a good deal of research, and incidentally throw interesting
sidelights on the gubernatorial history of the State. Frances Cox
Henderson, wife of the first Gorvernor of Texas, forms the sub-
ject of what is in many respects the most interesting sketch in
the book. She is said to have been able to translate twenty-eight
languages, and to have spoken twenty-two. of them.. She was
married in Paris while Henderson was Texan minister to Eng-
land and France. After her husband's death she returned to
Europe, where she remained during the Civil War. One of her
daughters married an Austrian count, and two of her grandsons
are now officers in the Austrian army and navy.
