6/3/1839 Letter from H. M. Rogers, Texas, to John G. Rogers,
Glasgow, Ky.
H. M. Rogers, apparently a physician, encourages John
G. Rogers to move to Texas where he can gain "fortune
and fame in a very few years," much sooner than in
Kentucky. Texas has conspicuous natural superiorities
and the peculiar facilities for commerce and every
luxury. The writer remarks that Mexico has sought
intercourse with this government [in Texas?] and a
minister has been despatched. No danger from Mexico
is anticipated. The Indians, including the Cherichee,
are the only serious, hostile enemy to Texas. Plans
are being made to fight them; bloodshet is expected.
He mentions recent defeat of a hundred Mexicans and
Indians by a comparable force of Texans. He expects
the Cherichee to react in a hostile way to the recent
announcement that they have no land.
[The receiver of this letter may be the same John G.
Rogers whose letter is in the William B. Rogers file,
q.v. See letter dated l/2l/1878].
