    At a meeting of the citizens of Columbia held on August 15, 1835, it was resolved that "a consultation of all Texas, through her representatives is indispensable," and as a result of a call made on August 20th by the Committee of Safety of Columbia, the various municipalities elected delegates to such a consultation, to assemble at San Felipe on October 15th. On the 17th, the following resolution was adopted: "Whereas, there is not a sufficient number of members present to form a quorum of the consultation, owing to the members being absent in the army; therefore, Resolved, That the members present adjourn until the first day of next month..." This is on page five; page six begins "San Felipe de Austin, Nov. 1st, 1835." The Consultation endorsed the establishment of a provisional government, commissioners to the United States to lobby for financial assistance, established a regular army with two-year enlistments and U.S. Army regulations, and elected Sam Houston as commander with the rank of Major General. The last resolution, on page 54: "Resolved, That this house now adjourn to meet on the first day of March next..." The Convention of 1836 met on March 1st and, on March 2nd, approved the Texas Declaration of Independence.
