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.
