vil War in America, which he speaks of having sent, but hope that it will soon reach us. A distinguished Confederate officer who has read it, speaks of it in the highest terms, and promises us a review of it, which we hope soon to publish. The kindly feeling of this gallant gentleman, who spent several months at General Lee's headquarters and writes of our army as he saw us, will be highly appreciated by our people, and his book has made, we are glad to learn, a profound impression in Europe. It is printed in both French and German, and an English translation is demanded. In his letter to the Secretary, Major Scheibert makes a handsome correction of an injustice he did General Early's valley army, and expresses his indignation that this error was not corrected in the French translation as he directed it to be. It will be a real pleasure to us to place on our shelves this able book of our distinguished friend. The following letters explain themselves, and will, doubt

letter are those which will inspire the conclusion of my work if I live long enough to come to that point: therefore I cheerfully aquiesce in your request. Believe me sir, yours truly, L. P. d'orleans, Comte de Paris. I have received your monthly publications and two bound ones — the first containing several numbers bound together, and the other on the Treatment of prisoners. I shall study the later carefully, for you cannot ignore that the treatment of the Federal prisoners at Andersonville is considered generally, and I fear justly, as a dark spot on the page of the Southern annals. Anything which would contribute to bring the truth forward on that subject will be gratefully received. office Southern Historical Society, Richmond, Va., November 10th, 1876. L. P. d'orleans, Comte de Paris: Sir — I need only acknowledge your favor of the 14th ult., and express my cordial reciprocation of the spirit in which it is written.

to convey the expression of my gratitude to the members of your Executive Committee, who, inspired with the most liberal spirit, have opened their doors to me. As you say, you cannot expect to win me over to the lost cause: right or wrong, my sympathies with the Federal cause can be at least openly avowed, because I did not wait for the success of that cause to profess them in a practical way, for they induced me to join the Northern army not when it was elated by victory, but shortly after Bull Run. If I had not been animated by those convictions, I would never have taken a part in the war, and consequently neither attempted to relate its history nor solicited the honor of becoming a member of your Society. I have strongly expressed these opinions on the political causes of the war at the begining of my work. It is natural that Southerners should object to these, should find my judgment harsh and unjust. In that great quarrel, I can no more expect to please the side against whic

It is with the sincere desire to seek the truth that I work through the conflicting documents published by both sides, and it is to facilitate that research that I ask to be admitted as a member of a society founded by Southern officers for the sole purpose of furnishing to future historians reliable information on their great achievements.

Editorial paragraphs. The annual Reunion of the Virginia division of the Army of Northern Virginia, which came off in Richmond on the evening of 1st November, was, in every sense, a grand occasion. The hall of the House of Delegates was packed to its utmost capacity by an audience which testified by most enthusiastic applause their high appreciation of the noble address of Captain James Gordon McCabe, on The Siege of Petersburg. As we expect to publish the address in full in our next number, we make no further comment than to say that it was a splendid oration, clothing valuable historic truth in a garb which charmed all who heard it, and holding the audience spell-bound for over two hours. The banquet at the Saint Claire Hotel, which followed the address, was a superb affair. The rations issued were such as even Federal commissaries never dreamed of issuing, and such as our boys failed to find in the camp chest of either Banks, Pope, or Milroy; the room and tables were
