first introduced in Texas and for many years were more generally used

Please accept my congratulations on the April issue of The Quarterly.
I am greatly pleased to have in printed form Haley's excellent tribute
to Dr. Barker and Dr. Barker's equally excellent response. To my mind,
both papers are delightful. I tried to secure copies last year but had no luck.
I am also glad to have the complete list of Dr. Barker's works. I had
