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
