228 The Southwestern Historical Quarterly
begins a series of articles, entitled "Followers of Duden." The
present installment is made up largely of translations of letters
and extracts from the diaries of Hermann Steines, written in
1833. The author summarizes the purpose in presenting the
series of articles in the following sentence: "We shall let them;
give the picture of Missouri as they found it, the native popula-
tion with whom they associated, their struggle with primitive
conditions, the impression and the joy which was theirs in coming
from one of the most autocratic to one of the most liberal coun-
tries in the world, their honest criticism of what they found and
experienced here, their honest endeavor to become in the fullest
sense, one with the state in which they elected to cast their lot,
their contributions, their successes and their failures."
"Sam Houston in Indian Territory" is the title of the leading
article in Historia, July, 1919, published by the Oklahoma His-
torical Society. Any new facts this article may contain are
placed under suspicion by the manner in which they are told and
by the glaring errors where well known facts are touched.
A paragraph at the end of the article states that "During his
life Temple Houston made an elaborate collection of rarities
including numerous relics from his father General Houston.
. . . Some years after the demise of Temple, this collection
was placed with the Oklahoma Historical Society, and is now on
display" . .
Historia for October contains "More about Houston in Okla-
homa." In character this article is like that printed in the July
issue. However, it quotes a brief article from the Sunday Okla-
homan, written by Mr. S. W. Ross, a native of Oklahoma. Mr.
Ross pays his respects to "sentimentalists and others ignorant
of early day history."
The Servers: A novel of reconstruction and social progress,
embracing practical plans for unlimited Christian service. By
Joseph Erwin Wilson. Houston: The Author. 1919. Pp. 377.
The subtitle outlines the serious side of the book. Oil wells
furnish the means for the experiment. A couple of love stories
make the plans workable and the book readable.
