On this day in 1838, Holland Coffee , an Indian agent appointed by President Sam Houston , enacted a treaty between the Republic of Texas and

the Kichai,

The treaty was part of Houston's peace policy.





Coffee was a Red River trader and a representative in the Texas House of Representatives (1838-39). He developed the town of Preston




and provided supplies given to the Indians by the Comanche Treaty of 1846.



He was stabbed to death on October 1, 1846, and is buried in the Preston Cemetery.
