the new Ways and Means Committee. Any success the com-
mittee has will have to come from the cooperation of the mem-
bership. As a starting point it has been suggested that the
committee's work might be initiated along three lines:
(1) The establishment of permanent publishing foundations for the
(2) The securing of additional advertising for the Quarterly.
(3) The encouragement of members to become Life Members, Sustain-
ing Members, and Patrons.
If given yeomen's cooperation from the membership, this
committee will become a vital force for the promotion of Texas
history. The opportunities are great.
The Tentative List of Subjects for the Handbook of Texas
has produced no less than a flood of letters, comments, and sug-
gestions. An effort has been made to acknowledge all letters, but
the mass of correspondence has been so great that it has been
impossible to discuss in detail the merits of each case presented.
In practically every case the suggestion made has been helpful,
although it will not be possible to incorporate in the Handbook
each and every additional suggestion. To give some idea of the
problems involved and the monumental amount of work that
must yet go into the making of the Handbook I am appending
hereto about one-third of the suggestions of Henry T. Fletcher,
of Marfa, who says, "Some of the enclosed may be duplicates
and some of them, in the opinion of the Handbook Advisory
Council, may not be worthy of inclusion, which will not dis-
courage me enough to keep me from making other suggestions
as they occur to me." Such fine and helpful attitudes from
"Henry T. Fletchers" all over Texas eventually will make the
Handbook the encyclopedic record of Texas which it proposes
to be. Mr. Fletcher says that the following list was suggested
largely by Francis Bernard Heitman's Historical Register and
Dictionary of the United States Army, II, 301-375.
