    Notes 
    • JUDGE THOMAS J. ANDERSON AND WIFE.
      "Life and Letters of Judge Thomas J. Anderson and Wife." including a few letters from children and others; mostly written during the Civil War; a history; carefully edited and copiously annotated by James H. Anderson, LL. B., life member and trustee of the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, and president of the Old Northwest Genealogical Society.

      This book by Judge Anderson, though intended to be the memoirs of his predecessors, is really an historical monograph of wide interest and value to a large field of readers, inasmuch as the main personages dealt with lived during important epochs of our state and national history, and came in personal contact with most of the leading characters of their time. Judge Anderson, the author, who served under President Lincoln as United States consul at Hamburg, and has had a most conspicuous career, is a gentleman of unusual culture and scholarly attainments, an excellent writer, giving a decided literary finish and flavor to the pages of his book which, it goes without saying, he wrote con amore. The work contains a vast amount of interesting correspondence, comprising letters from many of the distinguished officials of our government. These letters throw sidelights upon the events of their time, and furnish the basis for a great many annotating and explanatory statements by the author. It has much of Ohio history which is not easily found elsewhere. For instance, it tells when all the treaties with the Ohio Indians were made, and gives much reliable data respecting Ohio. Indians, with an account of the Delaware, the Seneca, and the Wyandot Indians -the last Indians to leave the state-and their reservations in Ohio, Kansas, and Indian Territory. It tells the story of the celebrated slave case tried in Marion in 1839. The work comprises letters from prominent men and women, written during the Civil War and throwing much information of great value upon the events which they describe with the vividness incident to personal experience.

      It recounts many important and hitherto untold, incidents occurring during the war of the great rebellion, anecdotes of great generals and accounts of some of the chief battles, and is especially valuable as setting forth the forceful part which Ohio enacted in that greatest of civil wars.

      Much is said about very many of the leading Ohio families, those who were active in the pioneer settlement of the state, and those who were conspicuous in its subsequent development, and those who became prominent figures in our national history. Mr. Anderson has the literary touch and delineation of an artist; his portrait sketches of the governors of Ohio and prominent characters in the career of the state are deftly and judiciously done; he presents much about these people never
      before published and arouses anew the desire to peruse the lives of our great state characters.

      Judge Anderson is to be congratulated upon his achievement in the scholarly detail of his work and his success in enshrining his own family with leading historical events as a background to their eventful lives. The book is made especially valuable by a very complete and satisfactory index. It is published by the press of F. J. Heer, Columbus, Ohio. [4]
