Second Annual Report of the State Geologist
To His Excellency, Richard Coke,
Governor of Texas:
This second annual report of the geological and agricul tural survey of the State, is respectfully submitted to your consideration. With many thanks for the aid you have given the work, I remain, yours truly,
S. B. BUCKLEY,
In the following pages I have given what I deem to be the most useful things pertaining to the agricultural and mineral resources of the State, which I have obtained during the past year, reserving much geological matter of scientific interest for a final report. Since the last report, I have bought chemical apparatus sufficient to analyze mineral soils and mineral waters, which will be of great assistance in the future work of the survey. This appa ratus has only been recently obtained. Austin, March 27th, 1876.
