Early Texas governors were not very well educated.

There was once a chief executive who thought "grammar" was his father's mother.

On one occasion this governor went hunting and forgot his gun. He phoned his secretary and asked him to send the gun.
"The phone connection's bad," said the secretary. "I couldn't catch that last word.
Spell it."

The governor replied, " 'G' like in Jesus; 'U' like in onion; 'N' like in pneumonia GUN, you damn fool!"

Wait a minute!   They had a phone in the Alamo?  :unsure:

Lol, T(h)ink, they had no phone by this time yet, but by then, Texas "belonged" to Mexico:

On the other hand, even after the spreading of the telegraph and, later on, the telephone, the "Wild Wild West" was shrinking, but still alive ...


But, but, but... Texas declared its independence from Mexico on March 2, 1836, while the Alamo battle was still raging.  Santa Anna was defeated and captured at San Jacinto during the following month, and agreed (was forced) to recognize Texan independence.
