ones that we would ba out to work in the
mines. . . - . -. . . .
Now the Texan has a natural aversion to
go under ground unless death overtakes
him and he has to go there. The Texas
volunteer also rather fights than work. . ;
Here it will be appropriate to quote the
memorable words of Gen. Ed. Burleson be-
fnr the buttle of San Jacinto. Gen. Hous
ton ordered him to get. his men to build a
tflmnorarv bidire over a branch of the Buf
falo Bayou for he thought that the large
force of Mexicans to whom the illy equiped
and inferior number of Texans were opposed

Gen. Burleson communicated the order to
his men. but had to return to Houston re
parting that "his men would rather fight
than build bridges."
Now to put the Texans to work would
have been a job; at least the .Texan would
not have hurt or overexerted themselves In
soite of guards or vigilance.
I was told by some of our men who were
chained and bad to work on pubho streets
or works in Mexico that they would pre
tend to get geared and run away with a
wheelbarrow f ull of stones and arrive witn
only half a load; others who bad to wheel
sand in sacks contrived to get bole in tne
sacks so they would leak.
At night they would contrive to get clear
of their shackles filing off the riveU and
while one of the party would whistle the
tune of a dance another would pat. Now
