Stephen F Austin to John Austin, 05-31-1833
Summary: Urging Texans to support Fisher as collector of customs.
I have assured him, that he will receive the support of the
Colonists in sustaining the Revenue Laws, and Collecting the duties.
As regards the Past, and any bad feelings which may have existed about the transactions in which Mr Fisher was concerned—I think they should all be buried in everlasting oblivion and forgotten. "The Soveraign Mantle" of the Nation has been thrown over all former excitements in every part of the Nation. The same should be done in Texas, and I have no doubt it will be, and that Mr Fisher, as Collector of Galveston will receive the unanimous support of the farmers and regular merchants.
A true copy of the original, in my possession, which I hereby certify.
