Stephen F Austin to Elias R Wightman, 06-10-1831

Summary: Can not understand field notes of Matthew Hubert.

San Felipe de Austin 10 June (31

Dr Sir,

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 difficulty, for if another surveyor is sent to do the work over again, it will be at your expense

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.

Please remember me particularly to Mrs. Weightman and the rest of your family

S. F. Austin [Rubric]

Mr. E. R. Weightman
