September 5, 1845 Article 1



    The Post Master of this city has received orders from the Head of the Department, directing that mails be duly made up here and in Mobile and forwarded by vessels and steamboats in the Government service, to Galveston and Corpus Christi, under the United States post office lock and key.  Return mails, by like conveyances, will be made up from Corpus Christi and Galveston for this port and Mobile.  Letters, newspapers and pamphlets, unpaid and prepaid, will be forwarded in the aforesaid mails, and only the overland United States postage is to be charged.  The Post Master General deserves the thanks of those who have friends in Texas for these facilities.
