308 LOUISIANA AND THE TRANS-MISSISSIPPI. [CHAP. LX.
United States. I propose on arriving at Matamoras, and if on finding
that the Lone Star delegates have not reached there, to go on to San
Antonio, where I shall certainly learn of their whereabouts, and if
they have not reached the latter point to proceed to Houston, via Aus-
tin, gather all the information I can, and return to Matamoras and
communicate, as you directed, to Brazos Santiago. If the delegates
are in Matamoras or thereabouts I can of course learn all from them,
and will then join their party and act according to circumstances.
There is but little more than time enough to reach Matamoras before
the time of their expected arrival. I will have the honor to call upon
you to-morrow morning, hoping that such necessary orders for trans-
portation, funds, &c., will be ready so that I can have some few days to
spare in New Orleans and receive further instructions.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
A. H. CAREDO.
