Description: Copy of transcript for a letter from William Robinson to Stephen F. Austin, in which Robinson introduces Thomas Pierce, a successful Englishman with a small family that has immigrated to Texas. Robinson appeals to Austin to sell both Pierce and Capt. Bowen a tract of land, arguing that both men will be productive neighbors and ultimately raise the value of Austin's lands.
