Stephen F Austin to John P Austin, 12-12-1836
Summary: Arranging certain payments
I wrote you last month informing you that Col. Barnard E. Bee was to pay you five hundred and fifty dollars on my a/c to pay the money you advanced to Mr. Dale— I presume there will be no disappointment as Bee is bound by Contract to pay the money— Write to him directed to Washington City and also to the care of General James Hamilton Charleston South Carolina.— All matters are going on very well here. The organization of the new Govt, is complete, and all works smoothly— No news of the Mexicans of late date.

I forward you a letter from the late lamented Genl. Austin—My
estimable friend tho of but recent acquaintance— Expecting to visit New
York—I retained the letter till I saw you—, I promised I think—to pay
you for Genl. Austin in all
