In her article "The Texan of 186o," Miss Friend declared "Texas
in 186o was a fast-growing, exuberant, young, hardy state."10" It is
hoped that historians will continue to investigate this "young, hardy
state" and to contribute additional insights into the period. Some
aspects of the era such as western exploration, frontier forts, and the
camel experiment seem to have been covered rather thoroughly.
Others, such as slavery and agriculture, the Democratic party, urban
development (especially of San Antonio), and social conditions, need
further investigation. While the German immigration has deservedly
resulted in several major studies, other ethnic groups deserve consid-
eration from scholars. Particularly needed is more study of the 12,ooo
natives of Mexico who lived in the state in the 185o's. The Irish, Eng-
lish, French, Czechs, and Poles also deserve more attention. Even the
subject of Texas politics needs additional investigation. Although
gubernatorial administrations have been studied, so far no one has at-
tempted to examine the internal workings of the legislature through
bloc analysis or factor analysis such as Jack P. Greene employed in his
