Summary
"While all manner of the varied material products, resources and characteristics of our great State will be on exhibition at the World's Industrail Exposition in New Orlean in 1884-5, it has been considered by the undersigned that the purely intellectual feature should not be overlooked. This work, therefore, is a Texas contribution in the literary line for that important occasion, and it is offered as a specimen of the culture, tastes and sentiments of a citizenry which graces a state as it advances through its more material advantages toward intellectual achievements, moral development and social refinement."--Preface, Ella Hurtchins Steuart, Houston, December 1, 1884
