    William M. Logan Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 6.25" x 8", Liberty, Texas; November 19, 1838. A retained copy of a letter to Matthew Hubert concerning land transactions between the two men: "Dear Sir /So far as regard that portion of our contract, particularly alluded to by you, in your letter to me dated last Sept. 3rd. which says I am not to pay you any money for the selection you have made from me...I received a title for the same. I hereby declare null & void. And agree to pay you as the field notes are passed, and soon thereafter as practicable. Please have them surveyed as soon as possible. Axcept [sic] in protestations of my respect & esteem Wm. M. Logan." With a filing docket by Logan on the verso.

    William M. Logan (1802-1839) was born in Williamson County, Tennessee and moved to Texas in November 1831 and settled near Liberty. In 1835 Logan enlisted in a company of Liberty volunteers fighting Mexico's government and served as lieutenant during the Siege of Bexar. In March 1836 at Liberty he was elected captain of the Third Infantry, Second Regiment, of the Texas volunteers who fought the famous Battle of San Jacinto. After the revolution he became the first sheriff of Liberty County and served as tax collector and muster officer. He died of yellow fever in November 1839 while in Houston on business and was buried there. From the Robert E. Davis Collection.

    Condition: The letter has the usual folds and has uneven margins, with paper loss at upper left corner and along bottom edge.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
