February 21, 1836—Sunday
The graveness of our situation is setting in. We heard that Santa Anna is flying a red flag and we know what that means—no quarter given. This morning about fifteen of the Tejano volunteers in the compound met with Travis, telling him they had to take their families and go. They know that Santa Anna wants revenge on the Texians for the shame brought on his brother-in-law, Cos, at the last skirmish.
