Member, Captain Hiram W. Cooke’s Mounted Ranging Company, Coryell County, TX, 1861
To his Excellency Governor Clark for the State of Texas
We the undersigned citizens of Coryell County would respectfully request your Excellency to authorize Capt. Hiram W. Cooke to raise a Mounted Ranging Company. Our Citizens, or enough of them to form a Company, have horses and arms already. Capt. Cook will take pleasure in raising the company. We request that when the said Company shall have been enrolled that they be permitted to elect their own officers to be commissioned by your Excellency. The Indians are now down on the frontier and our boys are anxious to drive them away.
