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.
