had expected ere this to have finished our Gettysburg series, but we are sure that our readers will be glad to have the two papers which follow on the numbers of the armies at that great battle — the second letter of our distinguished correspondent, the Count of Paris, and the able, exhaustive and conclusive paper of General Early, which seems to us to settle the question beyond all controversy.] Letter from the count of Paris. Chateau D'Eu, Seine Inferieure, March 23d, 1878. Rev. J. William Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: With the permission of the Adjutant-General of the United States army, General Humphreys has kindly furnished me with a complete and authentic copy of the monthly return of the Army of Northern Virginia for the 31st of May, 1863. The inspection of that document settles at once the difficulties which I met with in the evaluation of the effective strength of Lee's army at Gettysburg, and which I had submitted to you. It explains the diffe

Rev. Dr. J. William Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir — Some days ago, when I was about to start on a little journey, I received a letter from you dated July 9th, together with a number of pamphlets concerning different episodes of the latory of the War; Biographies of Lee, by McCabe and Cook; Biography of Stonewall Jackson, by Cook; Life of Jefferson Davis, by Pollard; Battle-fields of Virginia, by----; History of Morgan's Cavalry, by Basil W.

The Historical Register on our Papers. The following notice of our Papers appears in the October number of the New England Historical and Genealogical Register: Southern Historical Papers. Richmond, Va.: Rev. J. William Jones, D. D., Secretary of the Southern Historical Society. The Southern Historical Society is doing an exceedingly valuable work in publishing these Papers, which have not received in the North the attention to which they are entitled. They make already five volumes, with a sixth half completed, and they are full of the most useful materials for the history of the late war. The battle of Gettysburg is especially fully treated, there being more than a score of papers on it, and nearly all by officers who personally took part in it; and Murfreesboroa and many other battles are more or less fully treated. The purpose of the Society is, we believe, especially to show the gallant part which the South played in the contest, and there is naturally now and th

General Wright, of course, showed me every courtesy, and I was more than ever impressed with his high qualifications for his position. And surely,. if the official history of the great struggle is to be published by the Government, it is to our interest to make the Confederate part of it as full as possible. J. William Jones, Secretary of Southern Historical Society. Contributions to the Louisiana division, A. N. V., have been prompt and liberal. Leroy S.

f Alabama, has, in a canvass of four months in Tennessee and Kentucky, demonstrated what can be done in this direction, and Colonel Z. Davis, of South Carolina, has done efficient work in his State.
