William Bryan on the "twin sisters," 1836

To His Excellency the Governor         Agency of Texas New Orleans
& Hon Council of Texas                                 March 16th 1836


            I have rec’d a letter from Cincinnati
Ohio, & with it two Iron field pieces complete excepting harness, presented
by the Citizens of Cincinnati, (through WM Curry Chm of Texas Committee
Edward Woodruff & Pulaski Smith Esquire) to the Government of Texas[.]
I have in the name of the government acknowledged their receipt, and
presented them with your thanks for their noble & acceptable donation[.]
[A]t their request Mr WC Ogilvie has the charge of delivering the
Guns to the Government. It is also Mr Ogilvie[‘s] intention to devote
himself to the cause of Texas. [W]e have no doubt he will prove a
valuable acquisition to the Army.

I have the Honour to be
Yours Respectfully
Wm Bryan
General Agent
