          "To the Special Commissioner of His Excellency Lorenza de Zavalla's colony, Noah Tevis, a Native of the United States of the North, with due respect; would appear before you and says: That induced by the liberal provisions of the colonization laws of this State, I have come with my family, composed of my wife and seven children, to settle in it; if in view of the accompanying certificate you deem it proper to admit me as a colonist of said Colony, granting me the quantity of land to which I am entitled in the vacant Territory of the same. Therefore I request you to do as aforesaid, wherein I shall receive justice and favor.
      Nacogdoches, December 13, 1834."
      TITLE OF POSSESSION
          "I, Citizen George Antonio Nixon, Special Commissioner of the Supreme Government of the State of Coahuila and Texas, for distributing lands, giving possession thereof, and issuing titles to the Colonists under the Colonization Contract of his Excellency Lorenza do Zavalla: Whereas, Noah Tevis has been admitted as Colonist under the Colonization Contract entered into by His Excellency Lorenza de Zavalla with the Supreme Government of the State on the 12th day of March, 1829. The said Noah Tevis fully proved that he is married, his family consisting of eight persons, and the qualifications required by the Colonization law of March 1825, being founded in him, in conformity to said law, and to the instructions by which I am governed, in the name of the State, I grant and transfer unto the said Noah Tevis, and put him in real personal possession of one-half a league of land, it being all vacant land found in the locality where he has his house and field on the West bank of the river Neches, the boundaries whereof are described on the map and field notes returned by the Surveyor, Citizen Arthur Henrie . . . Therefore exercising the powers in me vested by the proper law, and subsequent instructions, I issue the present title and order that a testimonio of it be transcribed, and be delivered to the party interested, so that he may own and enjoy the tract of land.
          Given in the town of Nacogdoches on the 16th day of the month of January, 1835. Signed by me with two assisting witnesses according to law.
      GEORGE ANTO NIXON,
      Assisting: Joseph Carrire Commissioner."
