D W Anthony to Stephen F Austin, 02-03-1833

Summary: Introducing his brother. Printing the Bexar remonstrance.

Brazoria, Feby 3d 1833

Dear Col.—

Let this serve to introduce to your acquaintance, my brother Henry Anthony who wises to become a Mexican Citizen.— He visits San Felipe for the consequent donation of land which I assured him he would get by so doing.— My brother Jacob who has been here for some time is not well enough to go up at present and I therefore send the certificate of his having taken the constitutional oath etc. and also his name to a blank for a petition which I believe or hope will answer the same purpose as if present— I do not send you the Cash required on those occasions, but you can either draw on me immediately or wait a short time when it will be more convenient. I send you the proof of the first form of the Remonstrance in Spanish which has been waiting a week for correction. If this should be sufficiently correct, I suppose the other part can go to press without being sent to San Felipe, as it is important they should be printed immediately. The balance will be in type by the return of my brother.

The Bexar Remonstrance (Translated) gives great satisfaction here. You will see from the paper, what I have said on the subject of holding the convention at San Antonio. I hope I shall hear from you frequently and soon—

D. W. Anthony.

[Addressed:] Col. S. F. Austin San Felipe.
