Adrian Woll to Sam Houston, June 1844

In the performance of this duty


altho' the reflection that human blood


must be shed, is painful, yet I have


the satisfaction to know that our cause


is just and that it is sustained by


sacred and imprescritible rights, in


which we have no less confidence than


in the valor of our own troops, and the struggle


once renewed, the civilised world will become


the judge of our rights, while victory will


crown the efforts of those who fearlessly


wage the battle for their country opposed


to usurpation.

I have the honor to reiterate to


you the assurance of my high consideration


and esteem.

God and Liberty. Headquarters
