John Ingram to Stephen F Austin, 05-31-1825

Summary: Land.

Colorado May 31, 1825

Dr Sir

I have made inquiry concerning the land You proposed to let me have near Mr. Williams's, and have been informed by several persons well acquainted with it:

They inform me that the land is of a very indifferent Quality, and almost entirely destitute of timber,—Therefore if it is not inconvenient to you I could wish to make another selection—I had rather have a place somewhere between the road, from Jackson's to town and the upper surveys which have been made on the Bernard, I could wish to have it laid off in an oblong to include both sides of the creek

If you can suit me in this manner, will you please be so good as to let me know by Mr. Jimason

John Ingram.

Col. S. F. Austin
