Lamar, who favored a strong defense establishment, were a powerful element in the Texas government, and the great expense of the army was perhaps the major factor in the republic's chronic financial difficulties.  Source: The Handbook of Texas (Submitted on January 9, 2021, by James Hulse of Medina, Texas.)
