Seite 529 - PS The Lord is on our side. When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn. We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves. TRAVIS.
Seite 433 - Allah and the Prophet. The position that "there is no God but God, and Mahomet is his Prophet," pervades every part of the Mahometan religion.
Seite 528 - Fellow Citizens and Compatriots : I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna. I have sustained a continual bombardment and cannonade for 24 hours and have not lost a man. The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken.
