Texas Gazette, March 13, 1830, August 9, 1830; Barker, ed., "Minutes of the Ayuntamiento of San Felipe de Austin," Southwestern Historical Quarterly, vol. 24, no. 2, October 1920, p. 161; Eugene Campbell Barker, ed., The Austin Papers, 3 vols.

These population increases came despite the decree of April 6, 1830, which prohibited emigration from nations bordering on Mexico, including, obviously, the United States (see Ernest Wallace, David M. Vigness, and George B. Ward, eds., Documents of Texas History (Austin: State House Press, 1994), p. 67, for a convenient printing of the decree).
