HOUSTON - Fourth Issue of Warrants  

HW2  #3724  July 17th 1837  pay to:  Asa Thomas  $24.00  Asa Thomas was apparently a Private in First Regiment Texas Army on or around 10th May 1836 signed by Sec of War.  I found yet another document dated August 3rd, 1836 at Velasco stating that he was a Marine on the Schooner Liberty signed by Sec of Navy until May 9th 1836.  I presume he was soldier in Texian Army with this pay period in 1837.  A resonably nice example, ic, F/VF  $225.00  obv  rev       
HW3  #1979  May 29th 1837  Thomas Ralston  $72.00  "Said Ralston was born in the State of Pennsylvania, is 21 years of age, 5 feet 8 inches high, black eyes, dark complection, brown hair and by occupation when enlisted a Printer."  Document from Texas Archives written at Camp Bowie, Republic of Texas 22nd May 1837.  He was 3rd Sergeant Captain Thomas Jefferson Morgan's Co. (G) 1st Regt PV TA.  He enlisted for six (6) months and served nearly nine (9) months.  To allow him to receive full pay for nine (9) months service, Brig General Felix Huston increased his time of service from 22nd May until 6th June and placed him on furlough.  Some staining, TX Archive copies included, ic, VF  $220.00  obv  rev

HW4A  #6602  Dec 2, 1837  Military  JC Eccles assignee of John Toops $30.00.  There are hundreds of documents in the State Archives associated with JC Eccles.  He was apparently a Merchant who took in a lot of warrants for supplies.  This soldier, John Slaburn, was a Corporal in Co.H, 2nd Reg PV from 28th June 1837 until Sept 28th 1837.  Apparently the pay for Corporal was $10 per month where Private was $8 per month.  He was at Camp Chambers in Jackson County which is just above Port Lavaca and between Victoria and Bay City.   Choice Condition, ic, AU/Unc  $220.00  obv  rev       
HW9A  #4263  Septr 9th 1837  Military  Preston Fuller  $56.00  Private soldier, born Tennessee, 21 years old, 5 feet 6 inches high dark complextion, black eyes and black hair and by occupation when enlisted a farmer.  He enlisted in the Texas Army at Paducah (Kentucky) on the 6th Day of November 1836 to serve during the present War with Mexico unless sooner discharged by proper authority (and) is hereby discharged from the army of the Republic of Texas by reason of disability.  It isn't made clear what his disability was.  He was discharged at Camp Bowie.  He also sold his 1200 acre land bounty at or about the same time he was discharged.  He couldn't write "his X mark" rev.  Choice!  ic, XF  $220.00  obv  rev
