Laws of the Republic of Texas.
To prohibit the driving of Cattle from that part of the Country
West of the Gaudaloupe.
Whereas, Many persons have heretofore driven horses, cattle and
other animals to which they had no claim, but which were the
property of others from that section of the Republic west of the
river Guadalope to other parts, and whereas this practice arising
and hitherto allowed solely 'on account of the unsettled and disorganized
state of the country, is illegal and has inflicted much
and serious injury upon many citizens of the Republic: Therefore,
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
Republic of Texas in Congress assembled, That any person or persons,
who shall after the passage of this act, drive or cause, aid or
abet in the driving of any horses, cattle or domestic animals of
any kind, which are not his or their legal property from that section
of the Republic west of the Gaudaloupe river, to any other
section of the same, shall be deemed guilty of felony, and on conviction
thereof shall suffer the punishment inflicted for a violation
of the fifteenth or seventeenth sections, as the case may be, of an
act entitled an act punishing crimes and misdemenaors.
JOHN M. HANSFORD,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
DAVID G. BURNET,
