    [Confederate Texas]. Reports of the Committee on Public Safety to the Convention of the People of the State of Texas, Which Assembled at Austin, the 28th January, 1861, and Re-assembled on the 2nd Day of March, 1861: Containing the Missions to San Antonio, to the Rio Grande, and to the N. W. Frontier. Gen'l Roger's Mission to Louisiana, to Procure Arms and the Conference of the Sub-Committee With the Late Gov. Houston, With Accompanying Documents. Austin: John Marshall, 1861. First edition. 8vo, 173 pages. Bound in modern brown leather with gilt lettering to spine. Marbled endpapers. Foxed and toned throughout. Very good.

    This report provides a wealth of detail regarding the early days of the secession in Texas. Various reports describe in fascinating detail the handover of installations, weapons and other military stores from Federal troops in San Antonio and other Texas locations - the wide range of "acquired" booty includes furniture, weapons, building materials, and cash. The report also details the meeting between Governor Sam Houston and the "Public Safety Committee," in which the governor was effectively forced from office. An invaluable resource for reference and a fascinating read when opened at any random spot.
