1826 :: Expulsion of Elisha Roberts


Colonel Stephen F. Austin
Nacogdoches.
July 21, 1826

SIR,- After an absence of several months from this province to the United States, where I was detained much longer than I had anticipated in consequence of continued and serious indisposition, I returned to this place about the 1st of April last, and much to my astonishment and mortification found everything in disorder and confusion in this section of the province. . . . We have just heard that he [James Gaines] has decreed the expulsion of Judge Williams and Mr. Elisha Roberts [*], two of the most wealthy, intelligent, industrious, and useful citizens in the whole province. . . .
