Stephen F. Austin Letter To Colonel James Bowie and Capt. Fannin Letter November 2 1835 Autograph letter from Stephen F. Austin, written from Head Quarters above Bexar, November 2, 1835, to Col. Bowie and Capt. Fannin, two pages, 11 3/4in x 7.5in. Featuring Austin's review of the deliberations of a Council of War and his own suggestions concerning military manoeuvres, reading in part: "I enclose you the result of a Council of War held this morning by the Officers of this division. You will see that the Council has decided it is inexpedient to attempt to take Bexar by storm at present-that the army should take such a position as will enable it to harrass theenemy as much as possible, out of reach of cannons, that until the 18pound battery pieces and additional reinforcements arrive. This decision is submitted to the consideration of the officers of your division. In addition I will add several suggestions that were made- one is to occupy the mill with 200 men & post the balance on the rim under cover of a bank above and continue the batallion below in the position it now occupies. To this it is objected, that our force is not sufficient to invest the town, so as to prevent supplies from entering and that no important object can be affected in that way; that more can be done by uniting the whole force above town and sending out parties of 50 men, every day and night, to range around, drive off cattle, etc. As to corn it is certain they have a large supply inside. This point is therefore also submitted to your consideration; whether or not the whole force ought to be united above town where corn is plenty and harrass the enemy by keeping out beeves by means of detachments and wait until the battering cannon and reinforcements arrive or whether the army should remain divided as it now is. To decide this point the only question is this, can the present force invest Bexar all round; if it cannot, how can beeves beprevented from going in, except by keeping detachments constantly out? Can these detachments be sent & kept out, really, while the Armyis divided? I will now make a suggestion of my own for your consideration. It is this--you will take a safe position below-I willdo the same above. Each division will be subdivided into parties of 20, or 25 men-one of these parties will have the upper division at daylight and range round on the west and sleep with you at night. A similar party will start from your division at the same time & range from the mouth of Salado & the missions up the Salado & sleep here at night. A similar detachment will start at night from each camp and range round in the same way until they make the circle & get back to their respective divisions. I prefer this arrangement to the other."
