Bill Green wrote to tell us that Marjory Harper's illustration on page
470 in her recent Quarterly article, "Emigrant Strikebreakers: Scottish
Granite Cutters and the Texas Capitol Boycott" (April 1992, pp. 465 &
486), shows the burning of the temporary Capitol on September 30,
1899, rather than the burning of the Old Capitol in November 1881,
which is mentioned in the caption. Bill also provided some additional
information on other illustrations in the article: "I might add that the
photograph on p. 474 shows convicts at the cutting yard at 'Roseville,'
the convict camp near the quarries at Granite Mountain (a couple of
miles north of present-day Marble Falls). The photograph on p. 481
shows some of the free granite cutters-including probably some or
many of the Scottish granite cutters, at a second cutting yard main-
tained at 'Wilkeville.' That cutting yard was located on the southern
edge of Burnet, where the specially-built railroad track from Burnet to
Granite Mountain joined the Austin & Northwestern Railroad track
that went to Austin."
