Summary: Concerning land for Patrick Green.

Brazoria, Feby 4. 1833

Dear Col.

Mr. Patrick Green, who you will recollect has been in the colony four or five years, and thro' ignorance and poverty has failed to procure a better location of land than can now be made, appealed to me to assist him in getting him a donation, and in clearing it out of the office. I therefore entered his name on a league next to Graysons on the Caronkoway, which he now visits San Felipe to obtain a title to. I promised also to furnish him with the means of payment which I had with me when I was in San Felipe last, for that purpose; but am at this time without. You will please have the goodness to let this form no obstruction to the issuing of the title, as I have assured Mr. G------it should not, and I will forward the money in two or three weeks, or make payment when I shall be in San Felipe in the course of the month. I will send you the Spanish Copy of the remonstrance next week, as correctly printed as we have the means of doing, for I am afraid it will not do to wait longer for corrections—without losing much of the effect its circulation will have.

Let me hear from you as to the present aspect of our political arrangements.

D. W. Anthony.
