Anson Jones to Ashbel Smith, July 1844

Department of State


Washington July 14 1844

Sir


My last dispatch to you


was under date of the 26th March


last. Since then I


have had the pleasure of


receiving your several com-


munications to the 2d. June ulto.

The views you have ex-


pressed in your conversation with


Lord Aberdeen as detailed in


your letter of the 2d June are ap-


proved by the Department.

The Treaty for the an-


nexation of Texas to the U. States


having been rejected, the atten-


tion of the government is


again turned to the


subject of our relations with Mexico.


The absence of the President at this


time prevents me from giving you


his views in detail at the present


moment on this matter. The intell-


igence of the British and French


Governments will not fail to


make them perceive the importance


of an early and decisive action on their part


in reference to a settlement of


the difficulties between this country


and Mexico, and the establishment


of our unconditional independence
