GALVESTON TEXAS TIMES
GALVESTON TEXAS TIMES. The Texas Times, successor to the San Luis Advocate, was published weekly in Galveston by David Davis and Ferdinand Pinckard, beginning in 1841. Pinckard hoped to produce a national newspaper independent in politics and had agents in New Orleans, Vicksburg, and Lexington, Kentucky. "Moses Austin's Journal" ran through a series of issues. Pinckard moved to Yucatán, and on March 11, 1843, George H. French and G. L. Hamlin took over the paper. It was published as late as April 22, 1843. The May 16, 1843, issue of the triweekly edition, which had been published since late 1842, informed those who had paid in advance that they would receive the Telegraph in place of the Texas Times.
