"Few persons feel insulted at such a question [as to why a man has run away from the States and come to Texas]. They generally answer for some crime or other which they have committed; if they deny having committed any crime, or say they did not run away, they are generally looked upon rather suspiciously."

 

------ W. B. Dewees, "Letters from an Early Settler of Texas,"  Compiled by Cara Cardelle, 1854

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