GALVESTON NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER

GALVESTON NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER. The National Intelligencer, a weekly paper published at Galveston, was established by A. J. Cody before August 1841 as a successor to the Galveston People's Advocate and as a pro-David G. Burnetqv organ. Andrew J. Yates purchased the paper in August 1841 and published it until sometime in the fall of that year, when panic over the invasion of Rafael Vásquez brought Galveston business to a standstill. Yates closed the paper and went west to join the Somervell expedition.
