After the battle of Gaines' Mill, June 27, 1862, Hood's Texas
Brigade was a famous outfit among Lee's troops. One of the
things the brigade was famous for, aside from its fighting
prowess, was a large collection of doggerel known collectively
as the "Texas Bible." If one of Lee's men was heard to sing
any of the verses in this collection, he was tagged at once as
one of Hood's Texans. Frank E. Vandiver, Austin, Texas, would
like to have any information concerning the "Texas Bible." To
date Vandiver has found only one verse:
The race is not
To them that's got,
The longest legs to run,
Nor the battle to the people,
Who shoots the biggest gun.
An article which gives all the significant developments re-
lating to money in the Republic of Texas is A. O. Thomas,
"Money of the Republic of Texas," in The Numismatist, Sep-
tember, 1944, pp. 775-780. The article is highly recommended
by Dr. E. T. Miller, well-known authority on Texas money. Mr.
Thomas is the manager of the Southwestern- Bell Telephone
Company of Amarillo. Members who desire copies of this
Numismatist may address American Numismatist Association,
