Have just received the Texas Sketchbook, put out by the Humble
Company. What an informative and well gotten up document! It's
mighty nice to have and a fine gesture on the part of Humble and the
Texas State Historical Association, too, to place it in our hands.

I want to thank you for sending me a copy of the Texas Sketchbook
through the cooperation of the Humble Oil and Refining Company.
It is a beautifully done book, and I shall treasure it for my library.
The Humble people are certainly to be commended for this fine
spirit of interest in the preservation of our Texas history.

I am very grateful for the most interesting Texas Sketchbook. This
type of excellent work does more to preserve the wonderful history
of Texas than anything I know. The Humble Oil and Refining Com-
pany are to be congratulated because of their farsightedness and
interest in these matters.

I am greatly indebted for the copy of the Texas Sketchbook. This
is a most attractive publication and a real contribution to the popu-

of documentation and interpretation by the graphic artist, reinforced
by the editing of the historical text by the Texas State Historical
Association. The Texas Sketchbook is indeed a fine example of an
accomplishment of high quality, achieved by cooperation between
industry and professional historians.
