James Cummins to Stephen F. Austin, 10-22-1825

Summary: Land business.

Dear sir

Enclosed I send you the articals of agreement between John Roe and John Tumlinson Roe says that he has papers from the governor of this State to [hold] his land for his servises on any unapropriated Lands in this province, he says he will lay all his papers before you and I want you to deside on the Case we must have the Land Called for in the artical or what we have paid for it or the Value thereof. Though you will decide as you think proper when you see all the papers—but I do not believe he has one dollar to pay back for what he has recd—yours Respectfully
