As people explored and settled the new Republic of Texas, it was common to write home about their quickly changing life and country. As custom of the day went, these letters were often published in a local newspaper for the edification of all back home. Letters and news ranged from reports of people traveling, to engaging in new vocations, marriage notices, deaths, and obits, murders, births, fights and shootings, legal notices, politics, prices for commodities and more. News of the war with Mexico was of great interest back in the States. These letters offer a clear window into the dreams, fears, struggles, and soul of the early Texas Republic.
