A chaos—perhaps where no human foot has trod—perhaps Bastrop—perhaps New Jersey!
When the show was touring Texas we chanced to hire a man in Bastrop county.
"It's Pietro the gambler, from Bastrop," said one of the Texans, after a close scrutiny.
The men from the adjoining counties reached Bastrop the night before.
At Bastrop they found two companies of United States volunteers doing guard duty.
Every man is to receive one hundred acres of the Bastrop land, besides his regular pay.
Certainly, the Bastrop grant was so placed as to afford every possible lure to the youthful, enterprising, and adventurous.
