    [Texas Revolution] William Harris Wharton. Address of the Honorable Wm. H. Wharton, Delivered in New York, on Tuesday, April 26, 1836. Also, Address of the Honorable Stephen F. Austin, Delivered in Louisville, Kentucky, on the 7th March, 1836. Together with other Documents Explanatory of the Origin, Principles and Objects of the Contest in Which Texas is at present engaged. New York: Printed by William H. Colyer, 1836. 12mo. 56 pp. Recently bound in three-quarter maroon calf and cloth over boards. Raised bands, title label on spine with gilt lettering. Very good.

    In 1836 William Wharton, Stephen F. Austin, and Branch T. Archer addressed the public in various meeting halls in attempts to secure aid to the Texans in their time of need. Wharton's address was enthusiastically received by a sympathetic audience who had read of the fall of the Alamo and the Massacre at Goliad. Austin's address had been previously printed in Lexington earlier in the year. Streeter writes: "Among 'Other Documents' is a reprinting of the Declaration of Independence. This is probably its first printing in pamphlet form as its printing in Washington, D.C. late in May, 1836 was almost certainly later."
