Governor Elisha Marshall Pease records of his third term by Texas( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The governor of Texas is the chief executive officer of the state elected by citizens every four years. Elisha Marshall Pease served his third term as governor of Texas from August 8, 1867 to September 30, 1869. Records of Governor Pease's third term in office relate predominately to the progress of Reconstruction in post-Civil War Texas. Types of records are correspondence, including letters, petitions, telegrams, reports, lists, circulars, and letterpress books dating from September 1865 to September 1869, and undated, bulk 1867-1869. A large portion of the correspondence consists of letters, telegrams, and reports sent to military officials in Texas, particularly Generals Charles Griffin, J.J. Reynolds, and Edward Canby, which were then forwarded to the governor's office. Other frequent correspondents include acting Comptroller George C. Rives, Comptroller M.C. Hamilton, Brigadier General James Oakes, State Treasurer John T. Allan, and President of the Constitutional Convention Edmund J. Davis. The majority of records are related to civil officers, including applications, petitions, and lists of men for appointment to or removal from office, letters from officers regarding taking oaths of office and paying official bonds, complaints about salary owed, petitions for pardon or amnesty, and removal of political limitations imposed on former Confederate supporters. Another common topic is violence in the state, with numerous reports of assaults, murders, Native American depredations, and activities of anti-Union groups such as the Ku Klux Klan. Records also include letters relating to the treatment and rights of freedmen, the Constitutional Convention of 1868-1869, the State Penitentiary, railroads, trials and the holding of special terms of court, registration for elections, state and local taxes, outbreaks of yellow fever, and the building of a lighthouse on Matagorda Island. The majority of the loose records consists of incoming letters, with approximately 20 letters sent by Pease. Copies of outgoing letters by Governor Pease are found in two letterpress books, many of which refer directly to incoming correspondence found elsewhere in the records. Certain types of correspondence that appear consistently and frequently throughout the records have been omitted from the folder level description, including records related to appointments and removals of civil officials and the taking of oaths of office, general letters of introduction, and correspondence that acknowledges or inquires about the receipt of other correspondence. Some of the descriptions of individual items were taken directly from notes made on the back of the records, likely by a secretary around the same time that the letters were received. In the past, items relating to the State Penitentiary in Huntsville were removed from the records of governors, secretaries of state, treasurers and comptrollers to create an artificial collection of records relating to the penitentiary. Items related to railroads and Native American affairs may have also been removed from the records. In addition, the original order of the records may have been disrupted when they were sorted by date. As a result, letters or petitions that were enclosures of other letters may have been separated from their original context
