briefer mention, and the period since 1875 has been touched in a
few places only.
The reminiscences, which comprise almost one-third of the vol-
ume, were written within the last few years, but deal principally
with the period of settlement. They constitute a valuable por-
tion of the book. An interesting series of twenty letters, written
by an anonymous writer in Denton county to a friend in Arkansas,
from August 30, 1868, to May 1, 1870, is printed with the rem-
Some defects of the book that, perhaps, should be mentioned
are loose organization, some repetition, and the inclusion of some
matters to the exclusion of others which to the reviewer appear
more important. For example, Sam Bass receives almost as much
space as John B. Denton. In the account of the North Texas
State Normal and College of Industrial Arts the faculty and

Annie Carter Lee.-In History of Woman Suffrage, II, 22, it
is stated that Annie Carter Lee was banished from home by her
father, General Robert E. Lee, on account of her adherence to the
National cause. Annie Carter died of typhoid in North Carolina
during 1862. Letters from General Lee written at the time of
her death amply refute the statement in the History of Woman

mond, April 20, 1918, she brands this statement as a fabrication
and gives a full account of her sister's death. This letter is
printed in the Houston Post of May 1 and June 16, 1918, and has
probably appeared in the columns of many Southern papers.
