Summary: Introducing Miss McManos, who visits Texas to arrange for immigration of Europeans.

New York, 13 Novr 1832.

My dear Sir,

Allow me the pleasure to Introduce to your acquaintance Miss McManos, who has had it in contemplation for some time past to proceed to Europe, for the purpose of pointing out to her Friends, the most eligible part of this Continent, for them to migrate to, and of whose views I have already given my Brother Henry a partial Idea of, and refer you to her for particulars, She having determined on visiting your Colony, ere she embarks for Europe, for the purpose of obtaining the requisite Information about the Country, to enable her to communicate from personal observation, the inducements it may offer for her Friends—and also to make such arrangements with you as may be practicable, in regard to a Location—

You will please give this Lady the Information she is in persuit of and pay her such attentions as a Lady and a Stranger may require in a new Country

This Ladys mission is an important one, and I hope it may be consider'd mutually advantageous, to adopt means to cause it to be crowned with success—

Arch Austin

Colo S. F. Austin Sn. Filepe de Austin Texas, Please consider Mr McManos who accompanies his Sister as included in my Letter of Introduction, he will probably remain in the Colony if he finds it to his advantage
