LETTER FROM IRA INGRA3M TO BENJ. J. WHITE.
CHRISTMAs MORN, 1835.
FRIEND WHITE: MaSj. Perkins leaves for San Felipe this morning on your mule.-
Burke found him in his old range below, and rode him up.
Maj. P. bas a letter to the Governor, written after nine last night, communicating
information, received last evening, from Lipantitlan. The Mexican taken prisoner
there, and started off for Matamoras, (whom Capt. Dimitt supposed, from all he
had learned when you left, to be his express,) was Escalera, the brother-in-law of
Fernando de Leon, who was met yesterday by the Mexican whom he last de-
spatched for the Rio Grande. The.brother-in-law of de Leon and the Captain's
express of yesterday morning, came in together a little before nine last evening.
The news brought by Escalera is contained in the letter to the Governor, through
whom, we presume, you can obtain it.
Accept, my friend, the customary salutations of the day, for yourself and others,
from, sir, yours and theirs, IRA INGRAM.
