Scope and Content Note

A postcard and printed materials document the life and death of Stephen F. Austin and the celebration of the victory at the Battle of San Jacinto.

The postcard illustrates the tomb of Austin at Peach Point in 19009. Of particular interest is an invitation sent to "Capt. J. F. Perry and Lady, Brazoria," to un Banquete Y Baile on the 21st of April, 1838, to celebrate the glorious victory at the Battle of San Jacinto. The ball is being held in Bexar by El Coronel Seguin and los individuos de su compania.
