Hello I'm Stephen F Austin.This is my dad Moses Austin my dad was poor so during the great depression my dad thought he could make money by bring people to Texas.
But before my dad could finish the job he died from pneumonia and then he sent me a letter asking for me to finish his dream. And at the age of 21 I traveled to go meet the Spanish governor.
I thought it would be good to make it by the Brazos and Colorado river be because of the rich soil.
The Spanish governor thought it was a good idea so he let me do it. And American settlers would get 640 acres for who ever joined and they would get 320 more acres if they brought there wife and 80 acres for each kid.
I should call it the Capitol San Felipe de Austin. I will name the settlement The Old 300.
Hello mister would you like to buy this land it's only 12 and 1/2 cents for each acre.
Yes I would love to I shall move my family down here.
