William Kidd to Sam Houston, April 1837

such harange [harangue] that these papers are


filled of and as the Vessel is about


going down in tow I must close


with telling you that the Mexicans are


of opinion that they are coming down


on Texas by Sea & land with Indians


and all against you.

My last accounts from the


army at Matamoras represent


them inactive—and no sign of


any movement.
