    1836 Telegraph and Texas Register, Vol 1, No. 28, four pages, 13.75" x 20.25", Columbia, September 6, 1836. The Telegraph and Texas Register was published weekly by Gail and Thomas H. Borden at San Felipe de Austin, beginning in 1835. The official organ of the Republic of Texas, the paper boasted a circulation of 500 by the end of the year. On March 24, 1836, the advance of Santa Anna's troops forced the publishers to move to Harrisburg. Three weeks later, on April 14, the Mexicans plundered the printing office and dumped the press in Buffalo Bayou. That summer, the Telegraph was resurrected at Columbia, where the Constitution of the Republic of Texas was published in the first new issue. This September 6 issue features a front-page article by David G. Burnet addressed to "The People of Texas" and focusing on the attack on the press by the Mexican forces. The paper is in near fine condition; with light foxing and browning, and minor chipping at the margins. From the collection of Darrel Brown.
