He continued to preach and farm. He spent a short time in Cali- 
fornia for his health but returned to The Dalles and resumed his 
religious work. He preached his last sermon on October 18, 1874, 
and died at The Dalles, November 1, 1874. He was much interested 
in education. In his last letter to the American Baptist Home Mis- 
sion Society he said : "Will you once more send us a man for Ore- 
gon City University? I write officially." His death resulted from 
pneumonia contracted while visiting the schools of Wasco County. 
This was counted an untimely end for a man of his vigor though 
he was nearing his seventy-fifth birthday. 

The correspondence here reproduced was considered of suffi- 
cient importance to history for large portions if it to appear in the

Treasurer, care of Tacoma Public Library. 1919. Pp. 52. 75

An index covers the publications of the first ten years of the Asso- 
ciation's existence. 

The Seattle Conference was held a few months before the sign- 
ing of the Armistice and reflects the active part taken by librarians 
to help in winning the War. The Pacific Northwest Library As- 
sociation is to be congratulated upon its fine record and the care it 
has taken to safeguard the history of its contribution to the educa- 
tional development of the Northwest. Such volumes have great 
historical value since the history of a democracy is largely the his- 
tory of its institutions.

Pioneer Association. (Portland: George H. Himes, Secre- 
tary. 1919. Pp. 273-350.)
