George Washington Wright. Memoirs - A Visit Through Texas in 1817. An apparently unpublished (?) memoir prepared for J. Evetts Haley at the University of Texas. Title page reads: "George W. Wright Memoirs, Copied from the original secured by Maude Neville, Paris, Texas. Transcribed by Project 12, Bureau of Research in the Social Sciences, U. of T., June 1936." Next to this is typed "J. Evetts Haley." Approximately 100 pages of what appears to be a mimeographed, typed transcript on 8.5 x 11-inch paper, printed recto only, and bound in a plain blue cloth binding. Some insect damage; binding broken, but still surprisingly tight. Generally very good.

    Tennessee-born George Washing Wright (1809-1877), founder of Paris, Texas, fought in the Texas Revolution and was elected one of three Red River delegates to the first session of the Congress of the Republic of Texas. If unpublished, this is exciting source material on the early days of Texas.
