Description: 2 pages (front and back), 12.5 x 7.75 inches, Mina, Republic of Texas, December 11, 1835 (just before the Texas revolution) -- an exceedingly rare Colonists Bond from the Nashville Colony to L. Kinney, guaranteeing his head right in the Nashville Colony to a half league, for surveying it. The colony, later called Robertson's Colony, originated in Nashville in 1825 when the group obtained a contract to settle 800 families in Texas. This important settlement was second in size only to Stephen A. Austin's grant. Some toning, foxing, and damp-staining at the margins; minor tearing along several folds. Good condition.

Comments: A fabulous and historically important memento from the earliest days in the founding of the Texas Republic.
