Land survey signed by the recipient of Travis’s final letter from the Alamo

Docketing signature, “D. Ayers,” on the reverse of a manuscript document, 8 x 12.75, dated November 10, 1837. Document is a land survey done by J. E. Scott, and signed by him at the conclusion. Survey is for 3,125,000 leagues of land belonging to another gentleman, with a sketch of the tract in the upper left corner. Front of the document is also signed “L. P. More,” “S. Connell,” and “James Connell.” Small separations and repairs to horizontal folds, scattered toning and soiling, a bit of light paper loss, some slight ink erosion, and a few pencil notations, otherwise very good condition. A Texas merchant, Ayers received the last letter written by William Barret Travis, sent before the fall of the Alamo on the morning of March 6, 1836; William Connell, a wagon master for the Texian Volunteer Army, delivered the final load of supplies to the Alamo.
