Mitchell, of the University of South Carolina, formerly of Rich? mond College, this city, has written1 an Introduction to Miss Turpin's his-j lory. Dr. Mitchell read her manuscript and so did President Wood row Wilson,! of Princeton University, now Gover? nor of New Jersey. In their opinion, j Miss Turpin's history is accurate, com? prehensive and written in a style which would nppeal to grammar school ch..dren. Features of Hie book deserv? ing special mention arc found In the. emphasis placed un.cn national de? velopment during the past fifty years, and In tho many historical maps and pictures illustrating the text. The periods treated of by the book aro the beginning of American hls tbrv rllsh Colonies, the Frencli Knglish contest, the War of the Revo? lution, the American Republic, the War Ret ween the States, national develop? ment and an appendix .including charts, outlines, the Declaration of Indepen? dence and the Constitution of tha United States. The arrangement of the book is simple, direct, and calculated to meet the needs of pupils to whom topics, suggestive questions and readings point out the host methods of becom? ing fully acquainted with Ihe subject matter of a history necessarily con? densed Into hriefness, but adapted In outline to give elementary students and readers a taste for further Investi? gation and progress. Miss Turpin says in the preface of hftr book: "Thig book Is an attempt to teil the story of the American peo? ple In a simple, connected, vivid way, so as to make their history interesting and tholr past and present problems intelligible to young students. Ameri? can children should learn tho history of our country and should understand its past and present problems so as to bo prepared in their turn, to accept the sacred trust of Its, guidance.

In these cases where the manuscript was discovered and por mlsslnn to consult It was granted, tho letter has been reprinted from tho manuscript !n order to preserve any variations that the text contains." The letters are arranged according to the order of the years and dates in which they were written, beginning With August 27. 1762. They nre dated, from Richard Lee's home, Chantllly. Va., from Ph'ladelphla. Baltimore and York, Pennsylvania. Tho letters of an American, who, on .lune 7. 1776. moved in Congress, where he was representing his State: "That theso United Colonies are. and of right ought to bo, free and Indepen? dent States, that they arc absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain Is, and ought to be, totally dis? solved"?reflecting the spirit of a peo? ple on the midst of revolution and In its midst, animated In their struggle by I the loftiest sentiment, the most de? voted patriotism?cannot fall to have j a vitally Important bearing on Ameri? can history, cannot fall to be filled j with Interest for every American who Is Interpreting tho history of to-day ; and to-morrow by the history of a yesterday, which laid the foundation and the safeguard of Amorlcan llhcr ties. Whether, the letters are written by Mr. Lee to tho odlter of the Virginia Gazette, announcing tho withdrawal of I his application for the post of onllee ? tor of duties, or to other Americans and Englishmen regarding the great public questions then burning in men's minds, the result is tho same In regard to the stand taken by the writer, as one of the patriots who was n leader in his State and In the Continental Congress. That the letters possess the widest range and are written from a very comprehensive outlook, taking In do? mestic, as well as public Interests, may he seen from the following extract from one written at Chantllly, July 7, 1770, which says: "You know I have got the entail of my estate from my father dockt by writ of ad quod dam nnm. but not knowing how future judges and lawyers may explain away things. I remain uneasy about my younger children, and wish securely to provide for my poor little helpless girls In the following manner: I un? derstand there Is In London an office, where any sum of money being put. draws 10 or more per cent, annually, that at the end of every year the in ler>r.t is. engrafted into the principal and hoth draw Interest. Thai this continues as long as the putter In choose::, always observing that If death interposes, the whole betontes otllco property. Now I would choose to place CI00 sterling, for each of my girls liiere, and let it continue, until they were of age or married, and then lei them or their husbands do with It hs they pleased." Again, In a letter to Arthur Lee. Juno 26. 1 774. the spirit of resistance to tyranny comes uppermost as Is shown in these words: The first step taken by our Virginia Assembly was to appoint the 1st of June, the day on which hostility began against America, to be observed as fast- Tho spirit that this denoted was not liked by tho gov? ernment and we wero dissolved In two days afterwards, tho country business unfinished, no fee bill passed, and the courts of jnsllco' consequently atopt." Tho last leltor In this first volume of tho Leo letters Is .addressed to' Honry Liiurons and contains tho assertion of tho writer that: "Whilst . live I yti\\ strain every nerve to so euro tho In? dependence, Interoai and happiness of my country agaln3t all attempts to' tho contrary." nr. Rallagh beginn his profaco with the following statement: "Richard Henry Lee, sometime presi? dent of tho Continental Congress and mover of tho resolutions for a Declarti. . tlon of Indcpondonco, foreign nlllar.cos ! and a plan of confederation, exerted n I profound Influence upon political and constitutional movements in his State 1 and In Amorlca, from tho beginning of tho Stamp Act to tho cloao of bis pub? lic, career.

Probably no mem? ber of Congress, unless It be .John Adams, served In a more important capacity and on so many and such ef? fective committees of Congress, and at the same lime maintained such liter? ary activity as is shown In ills ex? tensive correspondence.

"A Tenderfoot With Pcnry." By George Borup. Frederick 'A. Stokes Company, of New York, through the Bell Book and Stationery Company, of Richmond. Rear-Admiral G. \V. Melville. U. R. N., retired, has written a preface tor George Borup's book which is dedicat? ed to tho momory of Ross Marvin. Ad- | mlral Melville says of the book: "I commend It to readers of literature, of exploration and to lovers of books of travel." The book commences with tho voy? age to Oroenland of the Roosevelt, tells about the taking on board of a num? ber of Eskimos and the sport ex? perienced In the catching of the little auks, by swinging a net on a hoop two feet in diameter, attached to the end of a llfteen-foot pole. Walrus shooting after tho walrus has been harpooned Is described as being very adventurous sport. The arrival at Cape Sheridan, tho Unloading of the Roosevelt, the send- J Ing out of scouts, the preparations and I the final dash 10 the pole precede tho account given of how Marvin met death battling alone against the forces of nature In the Arctic, wilds. The return trip Is enlivened by .whale catching, rendered sentimental by a meeting between an Eskimo bride and groom and has a touch of the tragic because of the accidental wounding of Macmtllnn by Chief En-, glncr Wardwell. Tho last chapter rounds up with meeting Whitney, a lust walrus hunt and then the arrival In Labrador. Mr. Borup'b last book paragraph pays this tribute to Commander Peary: "What a leader to serve under! Al? ways kind, considerate, giving us fol? lows Rood advice, going out of his way to help us. Had the Commander been the grim, mllitury martinet or despot his enemies make him out to be, ho could- never have, gotten the work out of either th'e Eskimos or us fel? lows, and it was due only to bis great determination, his never knowing when he was licked, and his ability to encourage and hold all or us together, to hold every man to the main purpose of tho expedition, that the American flag is where It now Is?at the North Pole."

She continues: "Our spinning wheels aro all broken, our hoes and our grind? stones passed from us long ago, when tho plowman and the miller took our plaoc; day by day machine-prepared and factory-produced vlnnds take a larger and larger place In the dlotary of rich and poor; the army of rosy milkmaids has passed away forever, to give place to the cream separator and the largely male and machinery manipulated butter pat. lit modern cilloa our carpets are beaten, our win down cleaned, our Moors polished by machinery or extra domestic labor.

"The ancient Chaldean seor," writes the author of "Woman and I.j?bor." "had a vision of aOarden of Eden which lay in a remote past. It was dreamed that man and woman once lived In joy I and fellowship, the woman ate of tl'to ? troo of knowledge and gave to man to eat; and that both wero driven forth to wander, to toll In bitterness, be? cause they had eaten of the fruit. "We also have a dream of .x, garden, but It lien In a distant future.
