Streeter, T.W. Bibliography of Texas 191
Regarding this book: "In November, 1836, a copy of the first edition (in Spanish) was sent to Stephen F. Austin, then serving as Secretary of State to the new Republic of Texas. Austin recommended that it be translated into English, stating that it was of 'importance to the public interests' because it gave 'the history of the military movements and views of the enemy during the invasion ... last spring.' President Sam Houston agreed, and urged the Texas Congress to republish it at public expense. On November 24, 1836, Congress voted to have 500 copies printed. ... released for sale in February, 1837. The Bordens billed the government for 300, not 500, copies. ... the first book printed in the Republic of Texas."--Jenkins, Basic Texas Books, p.158-159.
