THE DIARY OF WILLIAM BARRET TRAVIS is an importrant contribution to Texas history. Ordinarily, honor and antiquity tend to cloak the heroes of any people in garments of immortality, shading out the human weakness of men exalted by history. Thus legend grows around only a kernel of truth. No legend is needed to place Travis among courageous men. History supports the thesis that Travis was a man of incisive intelligence and endaunted purpose. Thus the publication of the TRAVIS DIARY supports the theme of his letters from the Alamo. In the routine of daily Texas life fefore the war for independence, Travis would show the indomitable character seen in his defense of the Alamo. Noting in his diary on March 9,1834 that he started for Mill Creek, Travis continued "...that waters all swimming & prarie so boggy--could not go--The first time I ever turned back in my life."
