[[underlined]] San Antonio [[/underlined]]

[[underlined]] April 11 [[/underlined]]
The 6 AM train was reported late on account of washouts, so we waited until 2:30 before getting off for San Antonio.
Arrived at San Antonio too late for Corpus Christi train & had to wait until 2:20 P.M. the next day.

[[underlined]] April 12. [[/underlined]]  Went out to the old Missions 4 miles west of town but could not get across the creek so had to be content with looking at them with a glass from a quarter of a mile away.
Took the 2:20 train for Corpus Christi & arrived there at 8:20.  Went to Mr. Alexanders hotel near the beach.
From San Antonio it is all mesquite & live oak & cactus to Beeville, where the coast prairie begins & extends nearly to the coast.  Scattered mesquite & Huisache & chapperal are common.
