TEXAS NEW YORKER. The Texas New Yorker was a monthly periodical issued in New York City by George H. Sweet during the 1870s. It was "devoted to making known to the capitalist, merchant, mechanic, and emigrant the agricultural, horticultural, stock-raising and other latent wealth of Texas." It contained considerable advertising and was designed to appeal to emigrant and Texas consumption.
