Samuel Sawyer to Sam Houston, October 1835

I understand he is about Nacogdoches & his sister left here for Texas, &


her brother in law last week. It is from some expressions used in relation


to his conduct with the Creek Indians. I hope you will not have


come in contact before this meets you; but that you will be willing


as I know you are able to enter into satisfactory explanations, &


that you may become friends & useful citizens.

Had I youth & strength enough, I would be [be-]


side of you instead of this epistolary substitute.

Wishing you all health & happiness


I remain your old & true friend.


Samuel Sawyr
