Old numbers of our papers — especially for the latter part of 1877 and the early part of 1878--are desired at this office, and we will be glad to exchange subscriptions for the current year or future years for them.
Our terms are $3.00 per annum in advance; but we have not been enforcing them of late as rigidly as formerly, and the result is that we now have several hundred dollars due us which we very much need. We will again send bills to delinquents, and beg that they will make prompt response and relieve us of wasting more postage in trying to collect our dues
 Life Memberships, and annual memberships, are still earnestly desired, and we beg our friends to help us, as they may be able to secure them. Cannot each subscriber send us at least one new one? And cannot some of our annual members become Life members, and gladden us with the fee ($50,) before the 1st of August?
Our sets of back volumes are not, of course, inexhaustible, and we would advise those desiring them to send their orders at once, lest they may miss a full set.
Prominent actors in our great struggle for constitutional freedom owe it alike to the cause, their comrades, and themselves, to put in shape for the future historian what they know about it, and we know of no better way to do this than by using the pages of our papers. We are glad to be able to announce that we begin in our next a series of papers by that gallant old veteran, General William Smith, of Virginia, who gives in most entertaining style some of his Reminiscences of the War.
