Come Down To A Place Called Home
Why Should You Come Here
Well there are many reasons you should come down here, but let me explain the most important reason of them all. Land (acres) in Texas was very cheap. Every man who came to Austin for land would receive 640 acres for himself. His wife would get 320 for herself. His and her kids would get 160 per child. If the man had slaves, his slaves would get 80 acres per slave. That would round up to $147 for 1760 acres total. which is about 0.12 cents per acre, I'd say that pretty cheap.
Requirements For Settling In Texas
1.) You had to become a citizen of your own country.
2.) You had to become catholic.
3.) You had to be of good moral character.
