Sam Houston was a member of the House of Representatives when he wrote this letter to Major William J. Worth (1794-1849) at West Point. Later, during the Mexican War, Worth served under General Zachary Taylor and General Winfield Scott, who is mentioned on page three of the letter. In 1847, when U.S. forces marched into Mexico City, Worth climbed onto the roof of the National Palace to replace the Mexican flag with Old Glory. The city of Fort Worth was named in his honor. The letter, including some fine personal content between friends, is signed 'Thine Truly / Sam Houston'. The verso of page three includes Worth's mailing address, a Washington postmark, Houston's official seal in red wax, and a second signature 'From Sam Houston'.
