December 18, V
r Pr, Evanst-
it until now have I found someone who could give
the information requested in year letter of Octol , . in
reference to Several Shearman.
I have reliable in tion to the effect that
.ral ... I. She a American .'.ray,during his visit
in the City of San ntonio • year 1871 had a suite of roo
anger , ir this f3ty, and that an elaborate reeeptic ,
banquet and ball was tendered the General at the Casino, in this
n incident of this visit, recalled by some of our
old cltiaens, ie the fact that when Pr. Thielepape, then Payor of
our city, called upon the Senegal at the . r Potel, upon entering
the suite of the General informed the Qener- t he was Pr. Thlele-
■-., ftlitreupon the Gtases iueste lelepape to take a seat;
immediately after Zt, Phielc. informed the General that he was
or of the city, and thereupon the General replied t. i should
kindly take two seats.
I am very sorry that Ztr- ii. tion I am living
you is not mo. pleta ...j.., and I take it that it would
be quite difficult in the absence of records, v.hloh I do not find,
'o obtain any more historical facts in reference to this matter.
¥eiy sincerely yours.
