taste the freedom and tang of the days when men drank deeply
of life in this great state of Texas."
Twenty-four pages are devoted to the life and career of John
James, but one would have liked to read much more of this man
who played so great a part in the frontier history of Texas.
Fifty pages contain the personal recollections of the author, sixty-
five carry a dozen articles about San Antonio, and fifty-eight
pages relate to western Texas. The nine splendid illustrations are
well chosen and are reproduced on a quality of paper in keeping
with their worth. The many brief sketches and accounts of
which the book is composed are extremely interesting and con-
tain much valuable first-hand information about many profes-
sional and other prominent people as, well as about many events.
The articles are, on the whole, favorable to the individuals and
events of which they treat and reveal the author as a generous
and courteous man. This reviewer regrets that such errors of the
typesetter as descendents, noisely, principle (for principal), Colla-
han, coporations, Balknap, Meuesbach, Gussen, Doual, and others
were overlooked in proofreading.
