H A McArdle Esq
I this day mail
to you the "Texas Almanac" for the year 1859
containing Dr. N. D. Labaddie's account of the
campaign culminating in the "Battle of San Jacinto."
I had intended to copy same for you but it was
too lengthy and therefore send the almanac to
you requesting its return at your convenience.
Very truly yours
You will see on page 166 Robinsons account of the
capture of Santa Anna. [A capture he did not make. McArdle]
Major Bryan could doubtless give you valuable
information as he was a participant in the "Battle."
