Thomas J Chambers to Stephen F Austin, 06-08-1830

Summary: East Texas now tranquil, and unless there is a new exciting cause there will be no trouble.

Col. Stephen F. Austin.

Dr Sir, I received yours of the 27th Ult. yesterday. Nothing worthy of note has transpired here since my last. On my return from St. Felipe I found some excitement, and some imprudent measures were taking, which, in all probability would have lead to serious difficulties; but everything is now quiet and tranquil, and nothing is to be feared from the imprudence of the people in this quarter, without some new exciting cause.

I do not answer your letter in full, as, fifteen days hence, I will see you in St. Felipe. I wish to advise further with you respecting the business in this part of the country.

T. J. Chambers

Nacogdoches 8th. June 1830

[Addressed:] Col. Stephen Austin St. Felipe
