[532] distribution in the counties of the State must have a happy effect in inducing other States to follow her example, and in calling the attention of private collectors to their value.

We have now on hand about three hundred complete sets (worth unbound at least $7,200), and a much larger number of particular volumes.

It is very gratifying to note the frequency with which writers on any part of the war quote from our Papers, and to see how they are modifying the views and correcting many of the errors of even Northern historians, while they are making an impression in Europe as surprising as it is gratifying to all who desire to see vindicated the truth of Confederate history.

It seems to us that every true Confederate who can afford it, ought to place in his library a full set of our back volumes, and become a regular subscriber, and we confess that we cannot see how some of our old comrades neglect to support this enterprise, while they spend five times its cost on Northern periodicals which constantly misrepresent the facts of our history.
