Memucan Hunt to Mirabeau B. Lamar, October 1836

Texas,) we had best accept it, in my very humble judgment

than stand the hazard of making a successful Government

for ourselves, and risking in a more eminent degree, our dom-

estic relations, than would be the case were we to become

connected with these States. I hope, my dear sir, I have not

intruded in forwarding to you this hasty sketch of some of

my views on the subject of our interesting and important po-

sition. I may write you again if leisure will permit me

to do so in a short time.

Mr. Saml Williams is here disposing of the land]

scrip which he has been authorized to do, and is appro-

priating the receipts to the purchase of articles for the benefit

of Texas which will be forwarded soon. He has offered

any facilities in his power to assist in dispatching emigrants.

I have the honor to be

yr friend & obt svt

Memucan Hunt

of the Texian Army

P.S.

I am in so much haste that

I have not time to look over and correct

any errors which my secretary in

copying, or I in the original may

have committed.
