"Within my knowledge, there is not a country of the same extent that has more poor land; that has a greater number of local causes of disease ---- that has more unseemly and disagreeable swamps and ponds, or that has more snakes, mosquitoes, ticks and flies than Texas."

 

---- James W. Parker, 1844, "The Rachel Plummer Narrative"

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
