HOUSTON TEXIAN DEMOCRAT
HOUSTON TEXIAN DEMOCRAT. The Houston Texian Democrat, a weekly newspaper, was published every Saturday between December 1843 and October 1844 by John N. O. Smith, John Benson, and D. E. Smith, probably as a pro-Sam Houstonqv and anti-annexation journal. The paper, which succeeded the Houston Weekly Citizen, was also published twice a week for a time.
