Scope and Contents: The letters in this small collection were written by Stephen Fuller Austin during trips to Mexico which were undertaken on behalf of the Texas colonists in an attempt to work out differences between the settlers and the Mexican government. The letters are addressed to Samuel M. Williams, a business associate of Austin, and Austin's sister and brother-in-law, Emily Austin Bryan Perry and James Franklin Perry, who were all living in or near San Felipe de Austin, Texas. All the letters except the one to Samuel M. Williams are included in THE AUSTIN PAPERS. Included with the letters is an original Texian Loan Certificate signed by Austin.
