Robert A. Irion to Sam Houston, 1838

the accompanying intelligence might
enable you to come to a more accurate
conclusion respecting all the circumstances;
and if deemed necessary, whilst in the
East, to take steps to counteract the
machinations that are now going on with
the Comanches.

I have received no intelligence
from our legation at London, since your
departure; and but one short communication
dated 11th February, from Genl. Hunt.
It contains nothing of importance.

Political matters at the seat of
Government are tranquil.

Colonel Bee and Govr. Smith are
absent.

With the highest consideration and
regard, I have the honor to be

Your Friend & obt Servt
R.A. Irion

Gen Sam Houston
President R.T.
Nacogdoches

Judge Birdsall and Mr Auchincloss desire me
to present you their best compliments.

I had the pleasure yesterday to learn that
you had arrived at Nacogdoches, but
regret exceedingly that it was after the second of March.

I hope you are enjoying yourself.
