been accepted as valid by the United States. The original
printed map shows a water-color line outlining the area of
Texas. According to W. L. G. Joerg, chief of the division of
maps and charts of the National Archives, this line is now
light brown but may well have been red originally and have
changed in the interval. Also Joerg points out,
This narrow band of water color attempts only to follow in general, or
to "pick out," the rivers, parallels of latitude, and meridians of longitude
that constitute the boundary, and too much importance should, therefore,
not be attached to slight deviations of the color band from the actual
features constituting segments of the boundary. In other words, how-
ever much the color band may waver, the author intended to show the
boundary as defined by the Rio Grande, the 42nd parallel, the meridian of
the source of the Arkansas River, the Arkansas itself, the 100th meridian,
the Red River, the lower Sabine River, etc.
The frame of the original printed map is 21 by 323/4 inches,
and the linear scale in the lower right corner is exactly 70 miles
to one inch. The map reproduced here is reduced somewhat,
its scale being about 105 miles to the inch.
The Presbyterian church in Jefferson, Texas, celebrated its
centennial on May 12. J. A. R. Moseley, whose Presbyterian
Church in Jefferson was published by the Association, made the
principal speech on the history of the church. Carl Hertzog,
El Paso, printer of the book, was also present for the occasion.
Reverend Tom J. Wilbanks gave the invocation, and Dr. R. R.
Rives pronounced the benediction.
The following letter from Alexander Moffit, librarian of the
University of Texas, concerns Moseley's book.
MR. CARL HERTZOG
620 NORTH STANTON STREET
EL PASO, TEXAS
DEAR MR. HERTZOG:
I have just received from Dr. Bailey Carroll of the Texas State His-
torical Association the manuscript and related materials preliminary to
the publication of The Presbyterian Church in Jeferson. The collection
will become a part of our Texas Authors File, which is composed of manu-
scripts, galley proofs, page proofs, etc., leading to the publication of books
about Texas or by Texas authors.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness in preserving the materials prepara-
tory to the publication of The Presbyterian Church in Jefferson and for
your generosity in presenting them to The University of Texas Library.
Here’s what’s next.
