Mr. Clarence R. Wharton
My dear Mr. Wharton:
In behalf of the Board of Trustees
I wish to thank you for the facsimile of an important
historic document, the order of General Sam Houston
to William T. Austin while he retreated from Gonzales.
The facsimile is certainly a beautifully executed one.
It will be kept in the Library's small but growing col-
lection of Texas historical documents. We appreciate
your remembering the library.
Very truly yours,
