Summary: Asking it to apply to governor for appointment of a land commissioner.

Ilustrios Ayto.

In the month of May last I was informed verbally by the chief of Department at Bexar that persons had been recommended to the Gvr of the State for commissioner to dispatch the land business of the several Colonies of Texas. On the 17 day of July I officially applied to the Gvr for the appointment of a Commissioner for my colony and on the 19 day of this month I again repeated the application, Not having recd, any answer to these applications, and there being a necessity that the land business of the colony should be completed I beg leave to call the attention of the Ayto. to this subject and request that an official application be made to the Gvr by that illustrious body representing the necessity and importance of having a com. appointed without delay.
