Stephen F Austin to Ramon Musquiz, 11-30-1832
Summary: Suggests that the ayuntamiento of Bexar draw up memorial asking for reforms.
Most Esteemed Friend.
I left Austin on a visit to your City, arrived here
substance of the representation, only some
disagreement on the manner of representing. If it is so, it will be
easy to settle the difficulty: let Bexar take the lead in the matter.
In short, the main object of my visit is. to see if there is any means
to avoid a dissentment with Bexar, and the balance of Texas. This
journey is rather troublesome to me, owing as well to the bad
condition of the roads, as to the danger of Indians, and the loss of
time from my private business, but we wish to see harmony prevail
in Texas, as it exists already in substance. The forms are of little
importance, and ought not to breed discord, though I believe it
will not be difficult to satisfy all parties, and to obtain a unity of
action. I shall be with you, a few hours after these lines reach you.
