Transcript Lavaca Jan 10th/59 Mrs Mary Jones Dear Madam Yours of the 4 inst is received. The information contained in it gave me much surprise, as I have no knowledge of such a power of attorney, as it speaks of. I was told in Austin that Mr Tabar had, unsolicited, applied for, and located my land claims, as his own suggestion. I had my lands located before I left the country, and the fees had been paid, and I do not feel disposed to pay them a seco- -nd time. If however, he will give me what the scrip was worth last winter in Austin, he can have the whole survey. Or in other words, I will take seventeen ----------------------------------------- hundred, and fifty dollars, and make a good title, provided it is not already sold. I will make no other compromise with Mr Tabar. Will you have the goodness to be certain that there is no other paper in your possession. I am led to be thus particular, from the reported existence of a record in Matagorda which is equally mysterious. Yours truly, J E Field PS. May I expect a speedy answer.
