Patent 87, Volume 40-A

Date: July 18, 1928
Creator: Texas. General Land Office.
Description: This document was issued to the Houston & Texas Central Railroad Company as the final instrument in the land grant process, assigning ownership to the railroad company for 640 acres in Tom Green County, section 21, block 20, as described in the patent. A patent is the original deed given by the state to the person or organization who receives first title to the land. It is the legal instrument by and through which the state surrenders title to land. O. Henry wrote a fictional account of illegal proceedings concerning a land certificate, Bexar Scrip 2692, in the short story "Bexar Scrip 2692.” This is the patent that ultimately gave land ownership to the railroad via that certificate.
