We have decided to move to Texas. Father likes that the price is so cheap for so much land. I am exited to move but afraid of the indians that might attack us. Mother said not to worry, but I can't help it.
Father has been trying to get in touch with Stephan F. Austin. He is an empresario. An empresario is someone who is granted the right to settle on land in exchange for recruiting and taking responsibility for the settlers.
I am packed and ready to go. I will miss the farm, because I have lived there all my life. (12 years) I am still exited, though, because I get to to see a new place. Time to go, Mother is calling!
