The entire front page is taken up with a great letter titled: "The Texas Santa Fe Expedition" "San Antonio--Spanish Missions in the Neighborhood--Return to Austin--Sight of Comanche Indians". A terrific travelogue with a wealth early text on this journey though the West, much of it unexplored at this point.

Eight pages, light foxing, very nice condition.
