the watch words. And in you I confide[.]
Let the proclamation spread all through
the hills and woods of Colorado but this
____ [?] and we save our colony and our
____ [?] fellow citizens who have taken up
arms in the other side.
If the bearer wants a horse or
any thing to prosecute his trip furnish him
with it and any thing else that may be necessary[.]
Austin will be here among us by the time
of the meeting on the 7th[.] [H]e was at Mata-
