It yet remains for me to express thanks to my helpers. To such Texans as
Mrs. M. A. Maverick, Mrs. Canterbury, Dr. Cupples, General H. P. Bee, Dr.
Herff, Colonel Ford, Colonel Withers, Mr. John Dobbin and to others I owe much
more than perhaps they are aware of, for it was my talks with " old-timers"'' that
put me in touch and sympathy with theirs and earlier times. Not all, of
course, that I have learned about San Antonio has been herein written down, but
every smallest detail was counted by me as a help towards the better understanding
of my subject. I was continually impressed by the excellence and accuracy of
Sidney Lanier's Historical Sketch, and designed very early that it should forum a
part of this work. To Bishop Neraz I owe thanks for a glimpse of the older
Church Records. As to the County Records, the kind directions of
Messrs. Thad. Smith and Theo. Rozeine, have been of much service to me. To
all these mentioned, and to many others who have unconsciously helped me at
the cost of being bored, I return my thanks : nor do I forget that an acknowledge-
ment is here due to my brother, Charles Corner, for work and encourage-
ment. I trust my book will not only be a satisfaction to the inquiring visitor, but
I should like to think that it could furnish a few notes and suggestions to a
future historian of Texas.
Further than these remarks, I have no use for the prefatory privilege, so for
the rest, " for better or for worse," nmy book, with its illustrations, shall speak for
