[96] send you $3.00 currency, renewal subscription for papers and membership.

I wore the “Gray” from May, 1861, to April, 1865, so am very naturally anxious to see the Southern Historical Society a success.

Yours truly,

—— —— ——

The following from a distinguished soldier who ‘wore the Blue’ will be appreciated, as his sentiments are cordially reciprocated:

Boston, January 16th, 1884.
My Dear Secretary,—Enclosed please find $3.00 in payment subscription for 1884, Southern Historical papers.

Let me congratulate you and the Society on the success of your papers.

The only way to get a correct and full history of the great civil war is to receive the statements of brave men who fought the battles and to hear from both sides.

With kind regards, I am,

Yours truly,

—— —— —— Rev. J. Wm. Jones, Secretary.

And of like spirit is the following, from a gallant soldier of ‘the other side.’

Trenton, N. J., January 11, 1884.
My Dear Sir,—I have this moment discovered that I failed in December to send my subscription for the valuable papers of your Historical Society and at once enclose my check.

Very truly yours,

—— —— —— Rev. J. Wm. Jones, Secretary.

we might multiply these letters almost indefinitely; but these must suffice, and if any complain that we have gone into the ‘blowing business’ we have only to call on our readers to bear us witness that we have not often indulged in that direction, and that the moral of it all is that we want more renewals and new subscribers.

A most highly appreciated memento, in the shape of a cane-head made of wood taken from the house in which Stonewall Jackson was born, has been sent us (through Rev. Dr. A. E. Dickinson) by Mr. J. W. Odell, of Clarksburg, West Va. We return our hearty thanks.

Jack White, one of the heroes of Sabine Pass, is not dead, as reported in the extract we published in the October number, but is living at Houston, Texas, ‘hale and hearty,’ as one of our subscribers there, kindly informs us.

By the way we have from a Federal officer who participated in the fight at Sabine Pass a very different version of it from the one we have published. We regret that this, as well as other very interesting articles, was crowded out of this number, but it shall duly appear, and then we hope to have an account from some Confederate participant.

other Editorial Paragraphs and Literary Notices ‘crowded out.’
