in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Texas General Land Office (GLO) is charged with the disposal of the public lands and maintaining the records of those dispositions. The GLO also manages state lands and mineral rights properties as well as develops revenue sources for the Permanent School Fund. Records consist of incoming correspondence to the GLO, dating from 1837 to 1899. Sketches of land locations, newspaper clippings, statements, memorandums, petitions, and reports accompany some of the incoming correspondence. Incidental drafts of outgoing correspondence are present and are interfiled with the incoming correspondence. Also present are returned outgoing correspondence with comments added by the appropriate party. Incoming letters are addressed to the GLO commissioner or a member of his staff, with the occasional letter addressed to another government official (usually the comptroller, treasurer, governor, or secretary of state) and then forwarded to the GLO. A bound photostat index register of letters received and a card index are also present. The register cross-references records dating from 1837 to 1870. The card index cross-references records dating from 1837 to 1854. Correspondents include state officials, most notably the attorney general, treasurer, governor, and comptroller; local government officials, most notably county clerks, county surveyors, land district surveyors, and deputy land district surveyors; state and U.S. legislators; attorneys; military officials; private land surveyors and land agents; immigration companies; railroad agents; other business entities; and the general public. Subjects reflected in the records include queries related to land purchases, patents, fraud, ownership (including for probate purposes), transfers, availability, and history; requests for certified copies of certificates or maps; issues regarding the leasing of state land; effect of legislation on land dispositions; protests of surveys; cancellation or abandoned land sales; submission of field notes, surveys, or payment; availability of land for veterans, and their heirs, for military service; requests to check Texas Revolution muster rolls; validity of land certificates; status of Greer County; boundaries of land surveys, counties, or Texas with other entities; migration to and within Texas; the grass-lease fight; the Compromise of 1850; the status of various colonies, especially Castro's, Peters, and Fisher-Miller, upon Texas' annexation; and the tension between the GLO and Attorney General James S. Hogg over railroad land disposition
