Ramsdell, my major counselor, for his helpful advice and kindly criticism ao (sic) generously given; to Dr. Eugene Barker for the use of his Life of Austin, which has been invaluable in the preparation of the second chapter; and to the library staff for their generous aid. The encouragement of Miss Ada Henderson, Miss Winnie Henderson, and Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Henderson has been a constant source of inspiration throughout the preparation of this work.
