    Mirabeau B. Lamar Manuscript Letter Signed "Mirabeau B. Lamar" as President of Texas, one page, 8" x 10". Austin, October 2, 1841. James H. Raymond of the General Land Office has requested Pres. Lamar to "appoint a committee to investigate the accounts and the work performed by him in the Genl Land Office." This letter, to James Izod and Benjamin F. Johnson, requests that they "act in that capacity and report to me whether in your opinion he has overdrawn any thing in receiving his pay for such service as he has rendered the Republic..." In April 1841, Pres. Lamar had appointed James H. Raymond acting Treasurer of the Republic of Texas. A month after this letter was written, he was appointed Chief Clerk of the Texas House of Representatives, a position he held until annexation in 1845. Evidently, Izod and Johnson reported favorably. Docket on integral leaf. Fine condition.
