Sam Houston to Edmund Pendleton Gaines, August 1836

in favor of the course which I


had suggested, and was pursuing,


I regard as the most distinguished


Compliment, which it has been my


fortune in life to recieve [sic]. And Sir

the Brevet of Captain would have


been to me when an Ensign; and is


certainly a greater evidence of merit


on my part!

I have the honor


to be with Great


Consideration


Your obt Sert
