Professor Marshall. However, it may be said that Chapter XXIII,
which deals with the economic grievances of the colonists against
the mother country, might have been made stronger by further use
of Professor Schlesinger's monograph, The Colonial Merchant and
the, American Revolution, 1763-1770. On the other hand com-
mendable attention is directed to Chapter XXVIII, "Governmental
Development During the Revolution." This in reality is a history
of the origin of executive departments, based, as may be seen,
largely on primary sources. Indeed, save for matters of form,
this chapter may almost be considered as monographic in character.
Were the writer so inclined he might try to enumerate the
typographical and other errors of like triviality. Such, however,
is not his intention. It is not, therefore, in an effort to round out
this review according to. the stereotyped form, but solely for the
purpose of correcting only one error, which, because of the real
greatness of the individual involved, should most certainly be cor-
rected, that attention is called to page 302. There it is stated
that during Father Kino's career in Pimeria Alta "he alone bap-
tized 4000 Indians." The real number baptized, however, was
40,000. Professor Bolton never intentionally belittled the work
of the great character he has helped to immortalize.
Especially commendable are the carefully selected lists of read-
ings at the end of each chapter and the line maps, approximating
fifty in number, which illustrate the text. A useful and compre-
hensive index completes the book. Taking into. account the point
of view, the facts presented, and the technical and mechanical
make-up of the book, Professors Bolton and Marshall, and indeed
all students of American history, are to be congratulated for
CHARLES W. HACKETT.
