February 22 in San Antonio history...

Santa Anna's advance troops arrive in San Antonio.

J. S. Friend advertises for two children stolen by Indians in Llano County. [Melinda Ann Caudle and Lee Temple Friend, who were abducted on Feb. 5.]

Louis Paulhan, "King of the Air," flew his aeroplane over the city today.  He attained an altitude of 2,500 feet flying from Kirby to San Antonio and return, a distance of 18 miles in 21 minutes.
[This was the first airplane flight in Texas.  Benjamin Foulois made the second, and the first military flight, on March 2, 1910]
