    George M. Collinsworth Autograph Document Signed. One page, 7.75" x 3.5". May 2, 1839. In full: "Mr. Lonsdale -- will please settle the amt of Capt Hughs duties by charging the same to yours [signed] Geo. M. Collinsworth / May 2nd 1839." After serving with distinction during the Texas Revolution, including the Goliad Campaign of 1835, Collinsworth went on to serve in various positions in local government. On January 16, 1839, he was elected collector of revenue in Matagorda, and it is possibly in that capacity that this draft is written.
    Condition: Uneven toning, but light overall. A few tiny chips, and uneven edge along the bottom.
