Where we will remain 2 or 3 months. .I am informed the water is
good and the site fine and healthy-I have not seen any more of
the Country than when I last wrote having been confined entirely
to duty in camp But expect shortly to have it in my power to
Travel about more.
Congress is still in Session but what they are doing I know
not-We Seldom receive any newspaper from Houston City-But
are afraid the Land office under the old Law will not be opened-
Consequently no Land can be taken up by Emigrant setlers. But
they can purchase the best and Pretiest land in the world from
old Setlers and titles good, very Low indeed. I would advise per-
sons who have any notion of Living in the most Lovely country in
the world to come see and buy Land-What I am going to do I
can not with any certainty say. But I do expect to put up a
Small House or Shantee on KNo 90 on Broadway Street in the
Town of Texana. If I can make things work right-Since I have
been writing this I have been informed that the senate of Texas
did not confirm the appointment of the Secretary at War conse-
quently his Power in the Army ceases. But the Furlowing will
progress as that was made when he was in power-He was rejected
on constitutional objections-Col Wiggenton is the oldest officer
in the Field. Consequently He is at this time Commander of the
Texian Armies-So we go There is many ups and downs in this
life I am in hopes the ups will hereafter have the Ascendant-
With Sentiments of much respect and esteem I conclude by signing
etc yours affectionately
