An important Ohio magazine, edited W. D. Gallagher ‘to place the literature and culture of the Ohio Valley on a par with those of the east.’ Aside from Science, economics, education, and selected and original literature and reviews, it is now most important for its articles on early Western culture and exploration, including a lengthy original serial entitled “Notes on Texas” by ‘a gentleman from Ohio.’ The last volume was published in Cincinnati.
