Texas Trivia

Governor Henry Smith, the head of the Provisional Government of Texas established in November 1835, used his private seal on December 28, 1835, to seal an official document appointing John Forbes, Sam Houston, and John Cameron as commissioners to negotiate with various Indian tribes: I Henry Smith Governor as aforesaid have hereunto set my hand and affixed my private seal, no seal of office being yet provided. Some historians speculate that the private seal Smith used was actually a button which had an eight-petaled daisy design, but this cannot be confirmed by examining the original document in the custody of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
