Mr. Kemper, the author of the work is a descendant of John Peter Kemper and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of John Fish- back; and John Peter Kemper was a son of John Kemper, of Miisen, another of the miners. </p><p>Besides enumerating the descendants of John Fishback, among whom are many distinguished men, Mr. Kemper gives us a full account of the origin of the settlement at Germanna, and of the country whence the German colonists came. Altogether, it is a valuable book, containing many suggestive details and contributing something real to the history of Virginia. </p><p>Commerce of Rhode Island, Vol. I., I726-I774.

A pamphlet by Robert Adger Law, Univer- sity of Texas. </p><p>This little brochure consists of two articles reprinted from the Nation and shows that, while Williamsburg had the first theatre, Charleston had the third, and that the first prologue spoken to an American audience, which is preserved, was not at Williamsburg in I752, but at Charleston, </p><p>January 24, I734-5. </p><p>Tazezvell AM. Carrington. An address by Judge George L. Christian, Rich- mond, Virginia, January 5, I914. </p><p>This is a beautiful tribute to the worth and services of one who was long President of the Chamber of Commerce.

An address delivered before the Beta of Virginia Chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society at the University of Virginia, June I7, I9I4. </p><p>In this little treatise, we have an interesting presentation of the most popular legislation ever enacted in America during the Colonial times.
