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
