Joseph D Grafton to Stephen F Austin, 05-05-1830
Summary: Inquiring conditions of settlement in Texas.
St. Genevieve, Mri,
As the bearer leaves this in a few minutes, I have only time to ask a few questions, and will be thankful for your reply at an early day.—
3. Is it necessary, in your Colony, to profess the Catholic faith ?
As business in the Courts is getting very small in this County, I have an idea of removing to some other place, but with so large a family, I would not like to do it without a reasonable certainty of belter things elsewhere.—your early reply will greatly oblige me.-— Mrs. Grafton unites with me in the expression of sentiments of true respect.—
Jos. D. Grafton [Rubric]
