FOUND! Judge R.L. Waddill's Correspondence to Governor E.M. Pease

I just cannot stop researching the history connected to the wood I am using.  I have found the actually handwriting of Judge R.L. Waddill!  The wood I am working with was salvaged from his home that was built in 1855. 

This letter is a part of the collection entitled: Niles-Graham-Pease Papers provided by Austin History Center, Austin Public Library to The Portal to Texas History that is hosted by the UNT Libraries. 

This is a letter to Governor E.M. Pease from R.L. Waddill regarding murder indictments for several men not in custody—he suggests that a reward should be offered for the men—and accompanying indictments.

Rachel Winner...hmmm I think I can only be explained as creative. " My creativity likes to combined my ideas using several types of media. Graphite watercolor, pen and ink, illustration, portraiture, woodworking, documentaries, mixed media, sculpture, textiles and digital illustration is some of the tools I use to express myself. Wife, Mom, Sister, Daughter, Friend, Ankylosing Spondylitis Warrior, Advocate, Artist, Small Business Owner, Geek, Animal Lover, Horsewoman, are just a few of the titles I could carry at any time. So when others ask what I do...I simply say, "I am c[r]eative." Please enjoy and support my work! Check back often or subscribe to the interactive Creative Chaos emails.
