Milroy "a Capt of Cavalry in the first Regiment in the Texian Army." (James Milroy was the uncle of Union General Robert H. Milroy.) At the conclusion of the document, the name of Sam Houston as president has been struck through and replaced with Mirabeau B. Lamar. Toned with repairs along folds; the repairs bleed through causing strips of discoloration.
