Virtual Exhibit: AC's Move To Sherman: 1873

Austin College: Sherman Journal--1873Rev. Samuel M. Luckett, President of Austin College during the move to Sherman

4 Dec. 1873 - Houston

The great amount of work that had to be done in other directions and the great money pressure that has been on the country lately together with general alarm about yellow fever has prevented me from doing anything lately in money matters except to collect as far as possible debts and subscriptions already due. . . The College owed the Financial Agent $531.25 on the 9th day of Nov. 1872. Since then he has been paid $12.17. So that now the College owes said agent $1,819.08 without charging interest.
