Free State of Coahuila and Texas
Herewith I remit signed by myself the articles of agreement
proposed by Your Excellency, relative to the Colonization of three
hundred families within the limits designated for this Colony
already established. These boundaries were designated by His Honor,
the Political Chief of Texas, when he was at this place, by the
order dated 20th May 1824, the original of which I herewith hand
to Your Excellency. His Honor the said Political Chief subsequently
made an official communication to me under date of 21st September
1824, relative to colonizing on the River San Jacinto a copy of
which I herewith remit, in order that with these documents present
and keeping in view the grants made to the other Empresarios Your
Excellency may determine the exact boundaries of the respective
settlements, to prevent all doubts as respects the respective
boundaries. The Chocolate Creek spoken of in the order of the Political Chief is situated between the Rivers Brazos and San Jacinto.
God and Liberty,
San Felipe de Austin 4th June 1825.
To His Excellency Rafael Gonzalez Governor of the State of
Coahuila and Texas.
