Volume Iv--(July--December, 1877), which we have been for so long unable to furnish on account of the exhaustion of several numbers, is now ready for delivery — the missing numbers having been reprinted — and we beg those needing the volume to complete their sets to send on their orders at once. Please state definitely whether you wish it bound or unbound, and if bound, in what style. We mail it for $1.50 unbound, $2.00 in cloth, $2.25 in half Morocco, and $2.50 in half calf.
Renewals are still in order.--Many of our best friends having overlooked this (to us at least) very important formality. In a few days we shall send bills to all delinquents, but we hope that our friends will save us postage by sending us the $3.00 at once.
“he gives twice who gives quickly” is a proverb which we would be glad for our friends to remember. We would say to many who have promised to help us — by taking Life Memberships, by purchasing full sets of our Papers, or by direct contributions to our funds — that we especially need your help now, and that your contribution would be much more valuable to us now than it is likely to be in the future. We repeat what we said in our last number, that our financial outlook is more hopeful than for several years; but in order to realize our hopes we must have the practical and prompt help of our friends.
The Enrolment of troops from each State in the Confederate armies is a matter of great interest and importance, and we are glad to notice that the Legislature of South Carolina recently passed “An Act to provide for the preparation of Rolls of Troops furnished by the State of South Carolina to the Army of the Confederate States, and of the militia of the State in active service during the war between the Confederate and United States.” We believe that North Carolina has passed a similar act, and we trust that the other States will follow so that we may have a full roster of the troops who fought for Southern independence.
