Stephen F. Austin to George Fisher, 03-30-1835

Summary: Sending copy of his Exposition. Affairs in Mexico

Mr. George Fisher


I received your favor of 5 inst. making inquiry whether I have sent you a Copy of my "Exposition," as you suspect one had been purloined in the Post office, of that place, which had been directed to you. I think it probable your suspicion is well founded for I sent one to you, one to the Ayuntamiento and one to Smith.

I now send you an other copy which I hope may reach you.

I am still here a prisoner, on bail, and cannot make any certain calculations as [to] when I shall be able to leave, tho' hope in all next month.

I am very happy to hear that Doct. Beales is going on prosperously with the Settlement of the families he contracted with the State Governt and that he expects them out from Ireland and Germany in a short time. I wish him every success in this enterprise, for it is an arduous one, and also will be very usefull to the Country which needs population. Should it be in my pwer to serve him in any way I will cheerfully do so. My respects to Doctor Beales and also to Powers on the Nueces when you see them.

S. F. Austin
