year, but several books are in the process of publication. At the
present time type has been set, or is being set, on five books.
1. Winkler's Check List of Texas Imprints, 1846-1860, which
will be printed in part from the type used in the serial publica-
tion in the Quarterly.
2. Morton, Mier y Terdn and Texas, with an introduction by
Professor Eugene C. Barker. The greater part of this book, also,
will be printed from the type used in the Quarterly.
3. Hawkins, El Sal del Rey, a historical study in the develop-
ment of Texas mineral law. This work is being printed by
Carl Hertzog and will be one of the most attractive pieces of
Texana thus far published by the Association.
4. Robinson, R. M. Williamson. This book has been an As-
sociation project for several years. Soon after Professor Webb
became director of the Association, Judge J. D. Williamson of
Waco asked that Professor Webb locate a suitable person to write
the biography of his uncle, which would be published by the
Association. Duncan Robinson was selected for the task, and
the manuscript is now in the hands of the printer.
5. The Cumulative Index of the first forty volumes of the
Quarterly. This project also was begun by Professor Webb, who
employed W. A. Whatley to make the index. Mr. Whatley
worked three years at making the index cards. About eight
months ago the index entries had been checked, arranged in
alphabetical order, and the copy typed and placed in the hands
of the printer. Because of the pressure of other work, however,
the printers have not been able to get all the type set. Galley
proof has been set and read in the Association office through the
letter G. Just how soon the index can be ready for distribution
depends on the availability of paper and printers' time. It does
not seem unreasonable to hope that the index will be ready for
sale within a year but that could not be guaranteed. Making
the index has cost a tremendous amount of money. Much of
the cost has been borne by the University by its appropriations
to the Association, but the Association too has been to a con-
siderable expense in that regard-expense for which, naturally,
no monetary return has come in. The index will make one large
