Almost poetical, if it be not really so

From vol. 2 of James Hall's "The Western Monthly Magazine" (1833).

UPDATE 12/27/09: From the source, Mary Austin Holley's "Texas : observations, historical, geographical and descriptive, in a series of letters ; written during a visit to Austin's Colony with a view to permanent settlement in that country in the autumn of 1831 (1833)"

It was apparently uploaded to the archive on November 30, 2009 - or at least that's the "Sponsor Date." It was downloaded only once so far.

By the way, many of these books are being placed on the archive by the University of Pittsburgh Library System. Thank you neighbors.

Some more on the author of the above, Mary Austin Holley (1784-1846), first cousin of Stephen F. Austin.
