VERY FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE AND RARE TRANS-RIO GRANDE ROUTING, CROSSING FROM NUEVO LAREDO IN MEXICO TO LAREDO IN CONFEDERATE TEXAS.

The addressee, George Wilkins Kendall, co-founded the New Orleans Picayune. Through this newspaper, Kendall provided readers with accounts of his travels. Kendall joined an expedition from Austin, Texas, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, that claimed to be searching for new trade routes in the west. However, the party was captured by Mexican officials and forced to march to Mexico City, where the members of the expedition would spend the next two years in prison. Narrative of the Texan Santa Fe Expedition Comprising a Description of a Tour Through Texas (1844) is based on Kendall's experiences during this time. War between the United States and Mexico was declared in 1846, and Kendall sent news from the front lines back to the New Orleans Picayune. Kendall attached himself, at various times, to the Texas Rangers under Ben McCullough and to Generals Taylor, Worth and Scott. He is the first known war correspondent. His manuscript, The War Between the United States and Mexico Illustrated (1851), is an account of his experiences during this time. After traveling extensively in Europe and living in Paris, where he met his wife Adeline de Valcourt, he and his family moved back to the United States; first to New Orleans, where the family only spent one year, and then to New Braunfels, Texas, in 1856. About 1860 the family once again moved, this time to Boerne, Texas, where Kendall would take up sheep ranching and introduce Merinos sheep to the region. He died at his ranch in Boerne from pneumonia on October 21, 1867 (source: http://library.uta.edu/findingAids/AR376.jsp).
