Andrew Jackson Donelson to Sam Houston, November 1847

boy that I have named Martin and

that I count upon as a reformer some

60 years hence if the Democrats go

astray and forget the old Republican

principles. My son Daniel, the playmate

of yours, has recovered his health and

is smart enough. My two daughters are

learning all that they fancy in European

art and literature, and Mary threatens

to produce a work that will equal

Betina von Armens. John if he

lives 2 years will speak Latin, French,

and German, and be prepared for a professor-

ship, if you intend that we shall have

colleges instead of wars and bullfighting in

Mexico.

All unite in kind

remembrance to Mrs. H and to yourself.

Yr. friend

A.J. Donelson

I am waiting for an opportunity to send you

some German specimens of art.
