Two important letters by Jefferson Davis discovered. From N. O., La., Picayune, August 16, 1908. They prove that he was in no way responsible for conditions at the Andersonville military prison. Prof. W. L. Fleming shows that the Confederate Chieftain never saw the Chandler report until after the War. The two letters below, which were written by Jefferson Davis to Colonel R. H. Chilton, of Richmond, make certain the contention of the Southern historians of the war that a report made in August, 1864, by Colonel Z. T. Chandler on conditions in Andersonville Prison was not forwarded to Mr. Davis and that he did not know of the report until after the close of the war. Chandler, who had been sent by the Confederate War Department to inspect Andersonville, reported that conditions there were bad, chiefly on account of the lack of proper sanitation and the crowding of too many prisoners into the stockade. He recommended that numbers of the prisoners be removed to other p

The real Jefferson Davis in private and public life. From N. O., La., Picayune, December 6, 1908. Some facts never before printed concerning the Confederate President and his lineage, family and descendants. Physical likeness to his great Antagonist Abraham Lincoln, they were born in adjoining Kentucky counties-both were of Welsh parentage; both fought in the Black Hawk War. By T. C. DeLEON. On the anniversary of the great Southern leader's death, at New Orleans, Dec. 6, 1889, and at the ending of the centennial year of his birth—it is fitting that the remnant of the people he wrought and struggled for should teach their children what manner of man he really was. And it is with regret that some of us see the year closing and the loving and practical suggestion of Mrs. Cornelia Branch Stone, U. D. C., unfulfilled and almost unheeded. Engaged, at the opening centenary year of Jefferson Davis, upon a somewhat important work of Confederate chronicle, 1 was absolutel

Officers and soldiers of the War 1814-1815. from N. O., La., Picayune, August 23, 1908. Interesting manuscript discovered that gives New Details—Roster of the famous Battalion of Orleans Volunteers. It contains many names still prominent in this State—Credit given to the intrepid Corsairs under the command of Lafitte. One of the episodes of the battle of New Orleans is narrated in a manuscript in the possession of Mr. J. B. Pelletier, the Bourbon Street collector of antiques. The document treats of the part taken in the brief yet decisive combat against the British invaders by the Battalion of Orleans Volunteers, and gives a full roster of officers and men. It also comments on the valor, splendid appearance and patriotic service of the soldiers, and mentions, in special manner, the bravery of Lafitte, the buccaneer, and his intrepid French sailors, who helped Jackson, with their artillery, in repulsing the enemy. There are some kind appreciations of the battalion of
