William Bluford Dewees, Letters from an Early Settler of Texas (Louisville: Morton & Griswold, 1852. Reprint. Waco: Texian Press, 1968), pp. 29-30; Mary Crownover Rabb, Travels and Adventures in Texas in the 1820's (Waco: W. M. Morrison, 1962), p. 2; Eugene Campbell Barker, ed., The Austin Papers, 3 vols. (vols. 1 and 2, Washington, D. C.: Government Printing Office, 1924, 1928, and vol. 3, Austin: University of Texas Press, 1926) vol. 1, pp. 686-687. Rabb was unaware of or disdained conventions of spelling and punctuation. Readers might find her text more palatable in the form in which it appeared (edited and punctuated and, unfortunately, slightly abridged) in Jo Ella Powell Exley, ed., Texas Tears and Texas Sunshine (College Station: Texas A & M University Press, 1985).
