[1]   Congressional Globe, Thirtieth Congress, First Session, p. 727.

[2]   Willard P. Hall of Missouri, had moved reconsideration of House joint resolution No. 16 granting pay to Texas volunteers called up but never mustered into service. His objection was that the resolution called for payments which had not been accorded other volunteers---namely, for horses lost for want of forage.

[3]   Armistead Burt of South Carolina, who had moved the adoption of the resolution, explained at this point that a bill before the committee on military affairs would provide pay for all other horses lost in Mexico.

[4]   The House passed the resolution with sundry amendments on May 4.
