The letter says.."Dear Boys, just a note to remind you that by the time you get this letter it'll be March the 2nd..that's the day back in 1836 when the Texas Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Congress at Washington on the Brazos..and after Old Sam Houston caught Santa Anna nappin' down at San Jacinto a few weeks later, we become an independent country, with our own president, and our own army and navy and diplomatic relations with other countries and everthang..except money..but that'd come later....Aunt Rosie Lee wanted me to remind you, cause those things are still pretty important to the old timers.. and here's a check for a few dollars so when San Jacinto Day rolls around in April ya'll can go down to Sabinal and get drunk to celebrate it. I hope ya'll have some rain this month, Love, Uncle Buck"
