if Col. Fannin had "Surrendered un-
conditionally?"

If Genl Urrea, as is Stated, Subs-
equently asserted that Col Fannin had
Surrendered to him "unconditionally" I
believe he was induced to do so by
motives of policy, and at the dictation
of his chief, Genl Santa Anna, who had
again become the controlling power
in Mexico.

The foregoing Statement, which
is the same in all esential particulars
as that of Dr. Joseph H. Barnard, Assist
Surgeon of Fannins command, is true
to the best of my reccollection.

John C. Duval
