The two hundred and seventy one pages which follow are, as we understand it, compiled by General Marcus J. Wright, and embrace chapters headed President of Washington College, Home and Society Life, Death and Memorial Ceremoniports, letters, etc., some of which have never before been published and are of great interest and historic value. General Wright, who was a gallant soldier in the Army of Tennessee, and is an accomplished gentleman for whom we cherish a high persure, and we cordially commend it as worthy of a place in every library. May our gallant friend, General Long, live to write other books, and our good friend, General Wright, be spared long to continue his valuable services to the War Records office.
