Sam Houston to His Son, Sam Houston, Jr., 1861
how do ye! and to remember
the corn, & cord wood! We will be
hard run to live, for the first year.
Destroy the Cokleburs, in the fields
and yard! Write to me, and if it
comes in my absence, it will do no
harm, and if it rains, and we canot
get away it will gratify us to hear
from you! Tula Clay, and all the
Girls are well. Gertrude Hogin has
gone home, Her Father came for
her in a hurry. Came on Sunday last
and returned directly. Twas said
her Ma, was not well!
Sam Houston Jr.
