The author was a Presbyterian clergyman who travelled by sea to Galveston and thence to Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Goliad, and the first sixty pages are devoted to an account of this journey. The remainder of the book is turned over to his largely favorable impressions of Texas, as well as matters educational and ecclesiastical. Among the documents collected in the appendix is a "Proposed Charter of the Galveston University, in the Republic of Texas," for which conception McCalla is generally credited. STREETER TEXAS 1387.
