Transcript Willis April 1st 1876 My Dear Son Your welcome favor of the 30th Ulto. came to hand yesterday. I read it with much pleasure and interest. I think you did right in offering my land for sale. I agree with you, that it is best to get it into something available & more manageable. Your Pa, once , in 1852, saw this labor you speak of, he said it was a valuable location; good land & timber upon it. A few days since I had an interview with Capt. Hightower, in regard to our claim, he is of opinion that the new Constitution bars it but said if he saw any chance for getting it that he would do all in his power for us, that he had no doubt of its being a just claim &c &c. Now if I understand the meaning of the new Constitution under the head of Requirements and Limitations, Sec 44,853, we are not bared. If a foreign ministers salary was fixed by law, and as I always understood your father it was & to be paid in Par money, as the money issued by the Repub -lic of Texas was always below par, down as low ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ as 30 Cts, upon the dollar. I am now speaking of what existed under Gen. Houstons Admin istrations. A note form Gen Houston speaks of the matter of your fathers being the made the only exception. Now if there was a law fixing the foreign Ministers Salary & pay in par funds I do not think the new Constitution intends to invalidate it. That is so far as I can compre- hend the meaning of the instrument. I like yourself fear the laps of time &c &c . I posted Capt Hightower however in regard to why the matter had been delayed during you Pas, lifetime, and also since; Doct Jordan says that he will go into the subject with his whole soul & that he can make a jury believe that black is white or any other color he wishes. In other words that there is no such thing so surely as resisting the powerful arguments he can bring up to accomplish his end. Make his acquaintance when you meet him in Austin. He is an honest kind hearted man. I like him much. I have not heard from Sam or Sallie since I wrote you last. We are still having cold weather. Poor Mary Roper I hope she may meet with kind friends where ------------------------------------------------------------------ she is going. I so often think of her in her lonely broken up situation, and feel anxious to see her pleasantly situated once more. I am thinking of going out West some time this spring. I would not go, but going will be less expensive to me than staying here, certainly not more so; I will not need any more outfit in the way of clothing than if I remained here, or at Sallies. I will go on down there to see them before I start. Mary Ashe I think will spend some part of the summer at Gastons. Mrs Jordan intends going to the Fair with the Doct. he will go down towards the last of April as he is interested in the Chicken fights and Races . Mary is not going to the Fair With much love and best wishes from Your loving Mother Mary Jones. The Ten dollar bill came safely is sufficient for my present wants
