Editorhl Note:â€” The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well
as all works on Town, County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections
of its library of any and all manuscript compilations which hear upon the above mentioned topics.
In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will be at once
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The
New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, each donation of such character,
whether in printed or manuscript form, will be reviewed under the head of " Book Notices " and
a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent to the donor.
The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to
the above mentioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness.
Donations for review in the January issue of I'he Record should be delivered to the
Society before December ist of the previous year; for the .^pril issue, before March ist; for the
July issue before June ist; and for the October issue, before September ist.
All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the
interest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record.
The "Book Notices" of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as
genealogical students, and the review of a work in The Record is equivalent to a special
advertisement of such work.
Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work
donated and the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased.

William Salomon was born in Mobile. Ala., October 9, 1852.
lie was of one of the oldest and most highly respected Hebrew
families in this country. He died at his late residence, No. 1020
P'ifth Avenue, New York City, on December 14, 1919, in his 68th
His father's grandfather was Haym Salomon, a Philadelphia
banker and patriot of Revolutionary times. His mother, Rosalie
Alice Levy, was a grand-daughter of Captain Jacob De Leon, of
Charleston, S. C, who served in Washington's Army; she was also
a great-grand-daughter of Hayman Levy, who, it is said, at one time
had in his employment. Nicholas Low, of New York, and the orig-
inal John Jacob Astor of New York.
When he was three years old, Mr. Salomon's parents took up
their residence in Philadelphia, Pa. In early youth he was delicate
and was unable to attend the public schools in that city, but later,
when stronger, he was placed in a private school in New York City
and subsequently attended the Columbia Grammar School until he
was fifteen years of age. He specialized in the French and German
languages, and his knowledge of those tongues w"as of the greatest
value to him in his subsequent business life.
Mr. Salomon's first employment was with the banking house of
Speyer and Company, where he started in a sulwrdinate capacity ;
but soon demonstrated his ability for the larger affairs of finance. In
order to master the details of European financial and business meth-
ods he, at his own request, was transferred from the New York
house to the Frankfort-on-Main branch of Speyer and Company's
business. But, before he was located in Germany, the outbreak of
the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, obliged him to remain in the
