HEY. STOP RIGHT THERE.
Once they got him into the car, they finaly told him that he had been getting arrested for treason when he was actually trying to be loyal to his people.
I was on my way to San Antonio to ask the government permission for all the stuff the Anglos wanted.

Fellow Citizens & compatriots- I am next to a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch.
SOLDIERS GET READY. TRAVIS NEEDS HELP
Responding to the letter, 32 men arrived from Gonzales on March 1, 1836. In Texas, many of the volunteers stirred by Travis’ letter formed the core of the army Sam Houston led to victory over Santa Anna on April 21, 1836.
