Stephen F Austin to Ayuntamiento of San Felipe, 10-18-1830
Summary: Advising organization of certain militia districts.
Settlements are extending up the Colorado in situations which are exposed to the Indians which affords a strong reason why that section of the militia should be organised without delay. The law requires that the elections for militia officers should be ordered and presided by the Ayto. I therefore take the liberty of calling your attention to this subject and recommend that immediate measure be adopted for the organization of those Militia men, into a half company or company according to their numbers in conformity with the law.
God and Liberty San Felipe de Austin
