Stephen F Austin to James F Perry, 05-10-1828

Summary: Introducing John Austin, who visits St Louis.

Texas May 10. 1828

My Dear Brother and Sister,

This will be handed to you by Mr. John Austin a relative of ours, he has business in St Louis and has promised to call at the mines and see you—his stay probably will be very short, tho. long enough to give him time to answer your enquiries relative to this country

John has been with me several years in this country, he is a truly worthy man and you must make him as comfortable as you can while with you—

I wrote you a short time ago and have nothing particular to say since—Brother will write you from Orleans

S. F. Austin [Rubric]
