DescriptionLaws of the Republic of Texas; Passed at the Session of the Fifth Congress. Houston: Telegraph Power Press, 1841. 8vo, 189 pages. Appendix. Errata leaf. Indexed. Disbound and stitched. Wrapper with "Laws of Fifth Congress/Comptroller" written in ink on front cover. Wrappers are heavily toned with some water staining and damage to the edges. Pages are moderate to heavily toned with scattered light foxing. Insect damage on pages 59, 67, and v through viii of the appendix, confined to the margins. Dampstaining on the lower page edge throughout.
Second issue with same title, imprint, and date as the first, but including four additional acts on p. 185-189 (approved February 3-5, 1841), and with the appendix of proclamations separately paginated. The statement in the Morning Star (Houston) of March 6, 1841, that "the laws of the last session will be published within eight or ten days from this time, and will then be on sale at the Telegraph Office," probably refers to this issue. One of the two proclamations by Lamar gives the text of the Treaty with France signed at Paris, September 25, 1839. For the Gammel reprint of the laws see note to Streeter 479A, for the second issue. Includes An Act for the Relief of Certain Free Persons of Color, and An Act Regulating the Sale of Runaway Slaves.
Reference: Streeter 415, 478, 479A.
