Gaceta de Texas: Translation of First Number
The detachments full of that enthusiasm and greatness peculiar
to the free and virtuous souls replied that they would all die happy
at his side defending the rights and liberty of all America.
Among the different facts that prove the good inclinations and
enthusiasm of our brothers from the north in favor of the sacred
cause, we shall cite some in this gazette because we believe it to
be much to the point. The citizen of the United States of America,
A. Mower, living in Philadelphia and having a public press of
considerable reputation, being informed of the motives of our
noble war, and knowing of the necessity in which we find our-
selves for printing, abandoned all of his interests, and tranquility
which he enjoyed in the bosom of his family in order to come to
offer his services to the Mexican patriots, and after a hard and
long journey, he finds himself at this post where today he has
the satisfaction to be the first to give to the public a paper printed
in the State of Texas. We do not doubt that the government will
know how to recompense him as he deserves so that he may be
able to continue in this noble work. . . . Mower will find eternal
gratitude and recognition in the generous hearts of the true repub-
licans of this country !
