BRAZOS COURIER. The Brazos Courier, published in Brazoria by R. L. Weir from February 17, 1839, until December 1840, was a five-column, four-page newspaper that resembled in appearance the People, a paper printed at Brazoria in 1838. The Courier was published weekly on Tuesday and sold for five dollars a year. Advertisements occupied most of the paper until April 1840, when it began publication of the laws of the Republic of Texas.
