Our Fifth volume closes with this number, and we think our readers will agree that we have redeemed our promise “to maintain the high character of our publications.” We are constantly in receipt of assurances from every quarter that our Papers are not only deeply interesting, but indispensible to a full knowledge of the truth of Confederate history. Our friends will be glad to learn that our subscription list is steadily increasing, and that we hope to report at the next annual meeting of the Society very much the best financial exhibit which we have ever made. It is our purpose to exert every effort to increase the interest and value of our publications, and we feel assured that we can do so if our friends will continue to stand by us and help us. We contemplate various improvements in our monthly so soon as our subscription list will justify the extra expense, and we beg our friends everywhere to exert themselves to extend our circulation. If each subscriber would forward us a new one by the 1st of July, we would at once increase the number of pages in each issue and make other contemplated improvements. Shall we not have a number of earnest workers in this direction?
