Washington: Printed at the Congressional Globe Office, 1852. 13pp. Folded signature. Untrimmed and unopened. Fine. Congressman Howard commits about half of the present work to the question of the border between Texas and New Mexico, and also discusses how such boundaries will effect a railroad to the Pacific Ocean and subsequent westerly steamship routes from California to China and beyond. OCLC locates only ten institutional copies. THE HANDBOOK OF TEXAS outlines Howard's experience in Texas as follows: "In 1840 he was defeated for election to the House of the Twenty-seventh Congress [in Mississippi]. Shortly afterwards he moved to New Orleans, where he practiced law until December 1844, when he moved to San Antonio, Texas. He was a delegate to the Convention of 1845 and represented Bexar County in the House of the First Legislature. On February 27, 1846, Governor James Pinckney Henderson appointed Howard attorney general of Texas, but he declined the appointment. Howard was a representative from Texas in the House of the Thirty-first and Thirty-second congresses but was defeated for reelection in 1852 by Peter Hansborough Bell." SABIN 33281. OCLC 5081497.
