Stephen F Austin to Elias R Wightman, 06-10-1831
Summary: Can not understand field notes of Matthew Hubert.
San Felipe de Austin
I find in examining the memorandums of surveys returned by
your deputy Mathew Hubbert that no one can understand them
You are the responsable person, and I fear will get into very serious
Lose no time in attending to this matter and come up as quick as possible and make a final close of all your work and complete all your returns. If you delay I shall be compelled to send another surveyor there at your expense a thing which you are aware would be very injurious to you and unpleasant to me.
S. F. Austin [Rubric]
