    A Quaker abolitionist, Benjamin Lundy visited Texas before the revolution, with the hopes of creating a colony for free blacks. Per Eberstadt: "A source book embodying first-hand information relative to the Republic, in the earliest stages of its settlement by the Americans. The text is from Lundy's original manuscript, and includes: 'Narrative of a Trip to Texas in 1830; Journey to New Orleans and Texas in 1833; Journey from Brazoria to Austin; Tours of observations through San Antonio, Bexar, Monclova, via the Rio Grande and Santa Rosa; From Laredo to San Patricia and Arkansas Bay; Journey to Matamoros and residence there.'"
