[166] of the races preceding us on this continent, but the medical fame of Dr. Jones has quite eclipsed the light of other endowments of his.

The Presbyterian says: ‘The learned scientist who, in addition to his wide investigation in the departments of medicine and kindred sciences, is a devoted archaeologist, and has accumulated a valuable museum of Indian relics, has recently read a lecture on Stone Weapons before the students of Tulane University.’

It is to be regretted that the limits of the present volume of the Papers preclude the publication of but a portion of the results of the invaluable labors of Dr. Jones, and it is to be hoped that the means may yet be attained by which the whole may be preserved in print.—Editor.

This roster has been constructed from the manuscript volumes (two in number) prepared by the Medical Directors of the Armies of Mississippi and Tennessee, and chiefly by Surgeons A. J. Foard and E. A. Flewellen.

These manuscripts were placed in my possession by my esteemed friend, Dr. J. P. Logan, of Atlanta, as will be seen from the following communicaton:

My Dear Sir—Your highly esteemed favor of the 18th inst., addressd to me at Atlanta, Ga., has reached me here where I am spending some time for the benefit of my health, which has been seriously impaired, though now much improved. I am obliged to you for the reports, &c., and regret that I am not able to aid you in connection with any records whatever in regard to which you inquire, not having retained any of my own reports, and not being able to refer to any source from which you could obtain the information sought. I transferred some records of medical officers belonging to Dr. A. J. Foard, formerly Medical Director of the C. S. A., some time since to Major Sidney Herbert, connected with the Atlanta Journal, a newspaper, with the understanding that they were designed for Surgeon-General Joseph Jones, U. C. V. Those records did not contain, so far as I can recollect, anything more than the names of medical officers serving in District Department, and were left by him in my care at the time of his death in Baltimore (where I happened to be), to be transferred to Lieutenant-General Jos. E.
