JOINT RESOLUTION

Delivering the property known as the Alamo to the city of San Antonio.

Whereas during the regular session of the Eighteenth Legislature, while measures were pending, looking to the purchase of the Alamo by the State, a resolution of the city council of San Antonio was read to the Senate and House, in order to induce the purchase of said property by the State, which resolution is as follows:

"Whereas, the State of Texas is contemplating the purchase of the property known as the Alamo, for the purpose of preserving it as a monument sacred to the memory of the martyrs who so gallantly perished in the defense of the liberties of their country, and the question of the care, preservation and guardianship of said property having arisen; now, therefore, in order that for all future time the State of Texas shall be free from all expense, charge, cost or liability for the care and preservation of said property:

“Be it resolved by the city council of the city of San Antonio: That the city of San Antonio agrees and binds itself to take care of, preserve and keep the said Alamo in good order and repair, without cost, charge or liability to the State of Texas, and to hold the same subject at all times to any future legislation of the State of Texas; and that a copy of these reso

lutions, duly authenticated, be forwarded at once to his Excellency, Governor John Ireland.”

Now therefore,

Be it resolved by the Legislature of the State of Texas: That the property known as the Alamo be delivered to the city of San Antonio upon the terms, and conditions and subject to the limitations set forth in the resolution of its city council above mentioned.

NOTE.—The foregoing act was presented to the Governor for his approval on the 31st day of March, A. D. 1885, but was not signed by him or returned to the house in which it originated with his objections thereto, within the time specified by the Constitution, and thereupon it became a law without his signature.
