Dear Sir

            Your favor


of Sept 23rd ult reached me several days


since and in reply beg here to inform you


that a full and authentic Statement of


the Capture of Genl Santa Anna may be


found among the archives of the Texas Histor-


ical Society at Galveston being written


from memory after the lapse of thirty six years,


to which I respectfully refer you.

            At your request I enclose a photograph


taken several years since, which I consider


a very good likeness and wish you every


success in your most laudable undertaking.

            I am glad to see the name of an old friend


mentioned in your letter, and I beg to assure


the old Veterans that I bear their memory in


sacred recollection.

Yours Respectfully

Jas. A. Sylvester
