    [Newspaper]. Telegraph and Texas Register. Vol. 1, No. 29. Four integral pages, 13.75" x 20.25", Columbia, September 13, 1836. This issue of the Telegraph and Texas Register features a front-page article by David G. Burnet addressed to "The People of Texas" and focusing on negotiations with Santa Anna. The paper is in very good condition with minor foxing and toning commensurate with age. Some spots of light chipping at the margins. Separation along the vertical fold has led to some loss of paper in places. Upper horizontal fold darkly toned on all pages.

    More Information:

    The second permanent newspaper in Texas, the Telegraph and Texas Register was a faithful mirror of the events, the thoughts, and the attitudes of the people. Eventually, it became the official organ of the Republic of Texas and an influential molder of public opinion, ultimately acting as the unofficial link between the young government and the people it served.

    The paper's premier issue was published on October 10, 1835, just nine days after the first shots of the Texas Revolution, and it chronicled the momentous events of that conflict for its subscribers. Its pages were filled with news of murders, fatal encounters with Indians and Mexicans, deaths, marriages, and, perhaps most importantly, the paper served as the official publisher of important laws and decrees passed by the fledgling government. For this reason, the Register is important both as a disseminator of the laws of early Texas as well as a chronicler of the lives of its citizens.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
