the soldier could get to camp to warn us, these two men had rode in town
and partly accomplished their object. They have threatened to raise a force
and make a dash into town and release the man we have under guard, also
threaten to kill every officer if they have to pick them off one by one. We
have strong guards stationed about town and pickets out. I hardly think they
will do us any harm. This seems very little like times of peace. But Texas is
an outlawed state. I wish our army had gone through the entire state, and

rest of the family are well also. Mv love to all. My candle is nearly burned
and I must close.
Here’s what’s next.
