Galveston, Nov 22nd 
You[r] letter is received. I am sorry I can
not give you exact dimensions of the flag carried by
my fathers company Newport Volunteers" at the battle
of San Jacinto.
As I remember it, it was about the size of the regula-
tion company flag-light blue silk, edged with inch wide
fringe same color.
In upper left hand corner the seated figure
of Liberty, holding the staff with the cap on it. I
enclose you a little romance connected with the flag
which may be of use and interest to you.
The glove was carried through the battle, but was lost
before the flag was presented to my mother. She re-
gretted the loss.
I am glad the picture is progressing. I wish
you all success.
