Dr. Joseph Jones was the first Secretary of the Southern Historical Society upon its institution at New Orleans, May 1, 1869. Its welfare has ever since been dear to his heart.

His was a nature of purest purpose—of absolute fidelity. He had been unflagging in his efforts since the conclusion of the war to secure a roster of the Medical Corps of the Confederate States Army, and a record of its labors.

He had committed to the Southern Historical Society the voluminous result of his devoted efforts, for preservation in its collections. In the last volume of the Southern Historical Society Papers (XXII) a portion of his valuable work was presented. Since then, for purposes of reference, Dr. Jones recalled his MS. It is to be hoped that his representatives will restore it to the custody of the Society.
