Joseph Crawford to Sam Houston, June 1837

There will be no Campaign against you this year, and

afterwards, it will be too late for Mexico to do any thing[.]

As I foretold you that miserable Country is again involved

in the horrors of Revolution. The true state of affairs there

I’ll not fail to send you from Tampico for which place

I depart in an hour from this time.

Mr Allen will deliver you Miss Mary’s Ring she

lent me as a measure and the one you requested me to

send for you to present her. I hope

she’ll like it and feel as funny

when she puts it on as I did when

I took her measure.

Present my very kindest regards to

Mr Allen, to Genl Henderson, Grayson, Smith, Messrs Fisher

and Richardson, and remembrances to all my friends.

[T]ake my most sincere good wishes to yourself

and believe me to remain ever[,] My dear General

Yours most respectfully

Jos. T. Crawford
