DescriptionSam Houston Signed State of Texas Treasury Warrant on the Eve of the Civil War Partly-printed document signed, "Saml. Houston" as governor of Texas on the verso of a Treasury Warrant measuring 8.5" x 3.2", dated Austin, December 3, 1860. The warrant is issued to Edward D. Evans $160.44 for "Protection of the Frontier" as part of "Capt Burlesons Company." Signed in the last months of his administration... and one month after the national election in which Houston was an oft-cited hopeful candidate. When Texas seceded from the Union on February 23, 1861, Houston was adamantly opposed to the move and refused to swear an oath to the Confederate States of America. He was deposed on March 18 and he permanently withdrew from public life. Light hand cancellation on verso does not detract from Houston's signature, tiny losses at right margin, otherwise bright and crisp. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
