I this day forward, subject to the orders of your Excellency, one
hundred and forty thousand dollars. This officer has orders to
halt at Goliad, with the object of awaiting the advices that your
Excellency may be pleased to send to him, regarding the continuation
of his march with the money, which will arrive in very
fit time, inasmuch as fourteen days at least ought to be spent in
their march from this to that port, according to the day-journies
of the itinerary, which I have the honor to annex, to your Ex4llency.
The balance of the money which was deposited in the commissary's
office here, still remains there, as it has been impossible
to find a sufficient number of beasts of burthen, capable of making
so long a journey, and with the object, that shorid your Excellency
see fit to dispose of it in this place, he might have it in
his power to do so. If your Excellency should adopt other measures
on the subject, from that moment they shall be punctually
I entreat your Excellency, to please to give orders that the
escort that lieutenant colonel Tola carries for the custody of the
money, may be relieved at Goliad, so that it may return to this
place, where I have not a single dragoon left.
May your Excellency condescend to accept my constant
sentiments of esteem and profound respect.
