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
