About this Item

William Houston Jack (1806-1844) was a lawyer, politician, and Texan Revolutionary. His brother's 1832 arrest in connection with the Anahuac Disturbances led to Jack's resistance of Mexican authority. In July of 1832, just days after this receipt was signed, William Jack put his signature to the Turtle Bayou Resolutions, stating the colonists' grievances against the centralist Mexican government. He continued to fight for Texan independence and served in the interim government when the Republic of Texas was first established. This receipt, from Jack's first career as an attorney, reads, "The above is executed by eight dollars & two cents, the balance due on the judgement of Peyton vs Morely. See page 289. Wm. H. Jack for Morely 14th July 1832" Below that on the page is a list of fees -- Issuing Citation - $0.31 1/4, Service of Citation - $0.25, [Moving?] Arbitration - $0.50, and Entering Judgement - $0.50. On the verso is a separate note in a different hand -- "Execution paid against Debts for cort [sic] this 14 July 1832 - returned satisfied as per Jonsons & Jones receipt." The receipt was cut from a larger sheet of plain paper somewhat unevenly, and measures approximately 4 1/2" x 7 3/4". Condition: There is an inch long tear extending down from the upper edge that has been repaired with archival tissue/tape (does not touch signature),light toning and soil, otherwise in very good condition.
