Navarro to Houston, Page 2

My colleague Mr. Taylor


has been sick for the


last three or four days.

There is a great deal


of animosity and hard feeling


existing among the Mexicans


on the opposite side of the River


on account of these difficulties


of Cortinas. Although I am


satisfied that all these troubles


originally arose from private


or personal feuds among parties


in this County; yet they have


now grown to such an extent,


that I am afraid it will


really result in a war of


races. All the country be-


tween this place and Rio Grande


City, as Maj. Heintzelman


informs us, is actually deserted;


the ranches, all burnt or abandoned.
