Stephen F. Austin to Captain Dillard, 05-01-1827

Summary: Land.

I have made an arrangement with Capt Dillard to let him have the half of the League of Land sold by DeMoss to J. E. B. Austin for which he is to pay the usual fees paid in the old colony—he is to notify me wheither he takes said land or not within four months, and if he does not give such notice within that time, I shall no longer be bound—Also he is to have a Labor at an island of timber in the Bay Prairie nearly opposite to Kawls, provided he gives notice to me that he will take it within two months
