Southwestern Historical Quarterly
1931, a book of 164 pages, with illustrations. Beginning with
Heinrich Conrad Kothmann, "founder of the Kothmann family
in Texas," the compilers broadly trace the career of the family
along the lines of the history of the German colonists at Fred-
ericksburg. The book is more than a catalogue of names and
dates. Ten chapters of a hundred pages give brief biographies
of early and prominent members, with details of Civil War-time
cotton and cattle trade with Mexico, post-war trailing of cattle
to Louisiana, Kansas and New Mexico, and other incidents that
distinguished the uneven tenor of border life. Preparation of
the volume is due primarily to the active interest of Elgin O.
Kothmann in the traditions of the past. An unusual illustra-
tion is a conception in modern heraldry, symbolical of the fron-
tier nativity, ideals and "principal occupation of the Kothmann
family . . . stock-raising."
The Perote Prisoners is the title given the Trueheart diary,
annotated by Frederick C. Chabot, announced for publication by
The Naylor Company, San Antonio.
A brochure of thirty-five pages, the Autobiography of S. W.
Miller of Frisco, Texas, notes the outstanding incidents of a
pioneer minister's life and work. It is published by the author
and sells for $.50.
The first meeting of the Yanaguana Society was held at San
Antonio, October 18, 1933. This organization for the promotion
of historical research and the preservation of pioneer memorials,
"proposes to subsidize the publication of manuscripts relating
to the early history of San Antonio."
