ship in History and Political Science in Austin College. Mr.
Wright has used to advantage such printed material as was avail-
able to him, but he has been hampered for want of the wealth of
manuscript sources that are only to be obtained at Austin. He
somewhat misinterprets Austin in saying that he "conditionally"
advised a declaration of independence on November 29 and De-
cember 3, 1835 (page '27). Such an impression comes naturally
perhaps from that portion of Austin's letter which Brown quotes
(History of Texas, I, 411-413), but the letter in its entirety shows
that Austin did not believe that the time had yet come for a dec-
laration of independence. In the letter of December 3 he argues
for a categorical declaration in favor of the constitution of 1824.
Two interesting illustrations which the article contains are a pic-
ture of Stephen F. Austin at the age of twelve and a picture of
the Austin coat of arms.
