maps of all the counties of Texas except Lipscomb in the Pan-
handle. Why don't I get that? Well, why don't I? Lord knows.
Another suggestion is that you inquire for those county his-
tories begun but never finished. . . . It is . . . important to
list "Papers of So-and-So." Have you examined the "Truett
Papers" on Shelby County? Still another suggestion. Histories
of cities in a county should be listed.
Everyone knows that Dr. Asbury is hard to please, a per-
