    A London barrister, Nicholas Doran Maillard arrived in Texas in 1840 and quickly settled in Richmond, becoming co-editor of the Richmond Telescope. In 1842 he published this account of the history of Texas, which was perceived to be a vitriolic denunciation of the Republic of Texas. Maillard insisted he had offered a true description of the Texas Revolution and of the aggressive and treasonable policy pursued by Texans toward Mexico. A vehement abolitionist, Maillard regarded Texas as a seat of corruption and dissolution. "Texas cut down to size - a difficult feat even in 1842." (Graff.) According to Streeter, "the map is the best feature of the book, for among its classifications shown in colored lines are the political boundaries of Texas under Spain and the territory now 'absolutely in possession of the Texians.'"

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
