Material for a true history of the war,

until we have now a collection which is widely recognized as one of priceless value. The Secretary has received from all parts of this country and from Europe numbers of letters seeking information concerning events of the war, and in almost every instance he has been able to furnish from our archives the information sought. We have given to a number of writers facts, narratives, &c., to aid them in elucidating the truth of our Confederate history, and we have the most gratifying assurances that our publications are looked to as high authority, not only in the South, but also at the forth and in Europe.

Our friends have given us with cheerful alacrity material which could readily be sold for thousands of dollars, but which is of inestimable value to the cause of truth; and yet there remains in private hands much that ought to be on our shelves.
