without interruption and all subscrip-
tion renewals from whatever expir-
ation date are payable to him.
Our reason for thus retiring is
our advsneing years—now well ad-
vanced into our 73rd year—and the
hannu Baumgu.ten Enderle arrived
at the same port and joined the Nes-
ters in Medii.a County.
While the colonists were settling
the region west of Hondo along Seco
Creek and at Old D’Hanis a mile
east of the pie.sent site, Mexico was
agitating for the region between the
Nueces River and the Rio Grande.
Meanwhile, the colonists under
the leadership of Nester and Enderle
made steady progress both in friend-
ship with the Comanche Indians and
in opening up the Southwest by rout-
ing a railroad through the area.

celebration is the pilgramge to Cross
