Paris,           May the 8th 1847                   

Friend Jas. [Bourland]:

        You will find one of the certificates to wit. [witness] of the examination of Mississippi attached to the title of Sale, which acknowledgment may be taken by a justice of the peace of Grayson County.  The certificate [is] left blank so that either a justice of peace or a notary public may affix the same. The latter I prefer and if the acknowledgment shall be taken by a notary public, write also the acknowledgment of Jack Deesin underneath of Mississippi and in order that the same be well done.

         I send you the copy that care should be taken to have the dates correctly filled up as under all other blanks. Write-up must be to the bill of Sale.

Yeary

Editor's note:  This letter was written by Capt. John Yeary (1796-1854), who came to Texas in 1839.  Yeary had served in the U.S. Army in Tennessee since 1830.   He was ordered to take charge of the cutting and baling of hay in Arkansas for use in army posts throughout the southwest.
