Santa Anna rides to Fort Bend

Ramierez Y Sesma arrives at San Felipe. Santa Anna leaves him there confronting Baker's men across the river and takes a column South toward the Fort Bend crossing. One of Baker's men is captured and reveals that Houston is 30 miles North at Groce's Plantation. Also Santa Anna learns the the Texas government had moved from Washington-on-the-Brazos to Harrisburg.
The General doesn't care to fight Houston's army in the timber along the Brazos, at any rate Houston has shown no inclination to fight. He'd love to capture the Texas Government, especially an old enemy, Texan Vice President Lorenzo de Zavalla.
Groce's is 30 miles North. Harrisburg is 30 miles east.
