Dinner to Colonel Austin
The text of Austin's speech to the citizens of Brazoria given at a dinner in his honor on September 8. Austin landed in Velasco on September 1, 1835, after more than two years in Mexico. In his speech a week later, Austin called for a convention to protest the centralist Mexican government's abrogation of the Constitution of 1824. He ended his address with this toast: "The Constitutional rights and the security of peace of Texas, they ought to be maintained, and jeopardized as they now are, they demand a general consultation of the people."
