Andrew Jackson Donelson to Ebenezer Allen, December 1844

Washington, Texas

December 10th 1844

To the Hon'ble

Ebenezer Allen

Acting Secretary of State of Texas

Sir,

The undersigned had the

honor to submit for the information of

the Government of Texas, on the 6th inst.,

copies of the correspondence between the Minister

of the United States at Mexico and that

Government, growing out of the views taken,

by the President of the United States, of the

renewal of the war upon Texas, and the

mode of conducting it, as dictated by Mexico

in the orders of Gen. Woll on the 20th June

last, and the previous decree of the Provisional

President dated the 17th June 1843. His object

was to give this Government full information

on a subject of such vital importance to the

interests of Texas; and particularly to show in

what manner the President of the United States

met the responsibility involved in the Treaty

of annexation, as a measure to which Mexico

had no right to object. And he is happy
