responses, and are now looking for forty-seven others who will do likewise. Another zealous friend sends us one dollar for the fund, and suggests that each subscriber do the same. This is a good suggestion, and we hope that a large number will adopt it. Others have sent us for this special purpose sums ranging from two dollars to twentj' dollars.
We are confident of being able to more than meet our current expenses in the future, and if our friends will only provide for the old debt, we shall have no ^further trouble.
Army Northern Virginia Memorial Volume. Compiled by Kev. J. William Jones, D. D., Secretary Southern Historical Society, author " Personal Reminiscences of Lee," etc. at the request of the Virginia Division Army of Northern Virginia Association. We are indebted to the publishers, Randolph & English, Richmond, for a
copy of this book, which is now ready for delivery. It is a book of 348 pages, and contains :
1. A report of the great Lee Memorial Meeting in Richmond in November, 1870, with the splendid orations delivered on the occasion by President Davis and others.
2. Reports of the annual reunions of the Virginia Division Army of North- ern Virginia, together with the addresses of Colonel C. S. Venable in 1873 ; ^Colonel Charles Marshall in 1874; Major John W. Daniel in 1875; Captain W. Gordon McCabe in 1876 ; Leigh Robinson, Esq., in 1877 ; Colonel William Allan in 1878 ; and General Fitzbugh Lee in 1879.
3. A carefully-prepared Roster of the Army of Northern Virginia.
4. A statement of the Relative Numbers of the Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac at their principal battles.
As to how the compiler has done his work we may not speak ; but we may say that these splendid addresses should find a place in every library.
The publishers have done their part of the work in really superb style. The printing (executed by our printer, Mr. G. W. Gary) is as fine a specimen of such work as can be found ; while the paper, binding and general get up of the book reflects the highest credit on the taste and skill of the publishers.
The book is sold for $2, $2.50, $3.50 and $5, according to binding, and will be mailed, or sent by express, to any address on receipt of the price.
The five-dollar ediiion contains the best steel engraving of General Lee we have ever seen, and a beautiful Confederate battle-flag, and is superbly bound in fine diced Russia.
Orders may be sent either to the Publishers or to the Compiler Box 61, Richmond, Va.
