Monroe Edwards to Robert M. Williamson, 1832inevitably go. I have made several propositions
to a few persons here to releas [sic] attack-
ing and dispercing [sic] the guard but I can not
find members sufficient to attempt such
an enterprise. They have expressed a wish
that their friends in Austins Colony should
be made acquainted with their situation
and from that quarter they look for aid[.]
The civil authority has been intirely [sic] put down
hear [here] and declarations have been taken against
Travis and Jack without their even being allowed
to appear or to defend themselves and there
is no doubt in my mind but they have proven
and can prove every thing they wish. All sorts
of Villainy has been practiced to obtain testimony
against them & Bradburn has even gone so far
as to put a poor drunken vaggabond [sic] in prison
because he woult [wouldn’t] sware [sic] what he wanted him [to].
I have been advised by my friends to leave
hear [sic] but feeling concious [sic] that I have done
nothing but my duty I will not run off
let the result of conciquences [sic] be what they
may. I wish you to communicate the substance
of this letter to the friends of Travis & Jack and
act as your feelings may dictate.

  With Sentiments of the highest Consideration

  I am very Respectfully Yours

A Friend

Monroe Edwards

  R.M. Williamson Esqr
