'Fairland Farm,' in that eventful year in which the Republic he
loved so well had so long and faithfully served ceased to exist on
becoming a State of the American Union, 1845; and having

"he was twice Postmaster-General of the Republic of Texas, and
later United State Senator, serving in the same session with his
brother, the subject of this sketch."
This is clearly a mistake; Mr. Jones died in 1845, before Texas
had a United States Senator.
GEORGE P. GARRISON.
B Younger brother of John, or John Rice, Jr., himself quite prominent
