Transcript Mexico, March 30, 1835 Mr. George Fisher Sir I reed, your favor of 5 instant making inquiry whether I had sent you a copy of my exposition, as you suspect one had been purloined in the post office of that place which had been directed to you. I think it probable your suspicion is well founded, for I sent one to you, one to the Ayuntamiento and one to Smith. I now send you another copy which I hope may reach you. I am still here a prisoner on bail, and cannot make any certain calculations when I shall be able to leave, tho. hope in all next month. I am very happy to hear that Dr. Beales is going on prosperously with the settlement of the families he contracted with the State Government and that he expects them out from Ireland and Germany in a short time. I wish him every success in his enterprise, for it is an arduous one, and also will be very usefull (sic) to the country which needs population. Should it be in my power to serve him in any way I will chearfully (sic) do so. My respects to Doctor Beales and also to Powers on the Nueces when you see them. Yours respectfully S. F. AUSTIN
