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.
