From Jenkins: “An entirely different book from Mrs. Holley’s 1833 volume, this contains a great deal more information on Texas history, geography, and society… and has considerably more influence than her earlier work. In addition to the San Jacinto reports, it includes the first book printing of the Texas Declaration of Independence, of the Republic of Texas Constitution, of Travis’ famous letter from the Alamo, of Austin’s Louisville Address of 1836, and other key documents of the revolution. ” Howes H-593.
