On the Cover
Charles William Tait, whose letters have been used as a primary source for Colorado
County and Texas history for years, but which until now have never been widely available either
locally or anywhere in the state.
Acknowledgements and Notes
"Consider the Lily" is dedicated to Bob Pickens, Myrah Jane Draper, Alfred Pavlu, Tracey
Wegenhoft, Jim Kearney, and the other interested citizens who provided strong verbal support of the
archives to the Colorado County Commissioners Court some three years ago, and to the memory of
Dr. James H. Wooten, Jr., who frequently urged me to write a complete history of the county.
Grateful thanks for their indispensible help are offered to Donaly Brice of the Texas State Archives
and Galen Greaser of the General Land Office, and to everyone else on the staff at the archives, the
land office, and The Center for American History; also to Darlene Hayek, the Colorado County
Clerk, and Harvey Vornsand, the Colorado County District Clerk, and their always-hospitable staffs.
The archives owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to Millycent Cranek, a descendant of
Charles William Tait, for her help in accumulating the collection of letters which is transcribed
