Through the Association the University library receives many
valuable acquisitions other than exchanges. Philip Crosby Tucker,
Bradenton, Florida, sent a collection of twenty-four items made
up of rare books and original manuscripts bearing on Texas history.
More than half of the books and documents are more than one
hundred years old. There are two letters signed by the first and
last president of the Republic. There is a letter from the Com-
missioners Stephen F. Austin, Branch T. Archer, and William H.
Wharton to William Bryan of New Orleans requesting him to
accept their draft for $15,000, payable in six months in money
or land. The letter is dated New Orleans, January 7, 1836. Mr.
Tucker made a previous gift of documents to the Association on
August 18, 1917. Mr. Tucker is the grandson of Dr. Nicholas
Labadie who published "The San Jacinto Campaign" in The
Texas Almanac for 1859. For this article Houston made a speech,
evidently in Congress, denouncing Dr. Labadie.
Among the pamphlets in the Tucker Collection is one published
in 1855 containing speeches delivered in the Assembly of New York
State on "Oaths, Obligations and Rituals of the Know-Nothings."
All books appear to be first editions. Among them are Waddy
Thompson's Recollections of Mexico, 1846, and The Life of George
Washington by Aaron Bancroft, 1826.

tory of The Department of the Treasury, No. 42, Texas. A second
set of four volumes contains a survey of the archives of the federal
courts in Texas. (Series II. The Federal Courts, No. 42, Texas.)
Professor William C. Binkley of Vanderbilt has for several sum-
mers taught advanced and graduate students at the University of
Texas. He is author of The Expansionist Movement in Texas,
1925, and editor of Oficial Correspondence of the Texas Revolution,
In the The Journal of Southern History, May, 1939, he has an
article entitled "The Contribution of Walter Lynwood Fleming to
