City of Houston

20th March 1842

Wm. O'Brian

Sir:

You will proceed forthwith by Pine
Island and from there thence to Oliver
Jones, Esq. on the Brazos. You will
show this to Dr. Anson Jones, and request
that he will come to me, so soon as
possible. You will then proceed on
to where you may find Colonel
George M. Hockley, Sec'y of War and
Mr. W.D. Miller, my private secretary,
and let them know, that I desire
them to come to me. If Col. Hockley
is usefully employed in the army
and he should think his presence
necessary there, he may remain
until I can learn more of
our situation. No express has

Sam Houston to William O'Brian, March 20, 1842, A.J. Houston Collection, Archives and Information Services Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
