Eben Allen to Andrew Jackson Donelson, June 23, 1845

Among the features of this Resolution, it must


be gratifying to the Hon. Mr. Donelson and his Government


to observe that provision whereby the acts of the Convention


to meet on the 4th proximo are clothed with all


the sanctions which can result from the concurring


approval and consent of the Executive and the


Representatives of the people. And not less gratifying


the undersigned trusts will be the assurance expressly


resulting from the proviso that the various steps yet to


be taken on the part of the Republic to perfect,


so far as [it] expands upon her, the measure of annexation


upon the proposed basis, will be adopted with


the same promptness and fidelity which has


distinguished her preceding movements in


this great cause, and in that confiding spirit of


firm reliance upon the magnanimity and


generosity of the United States, which has ever


characterized the policy of the Government and the


disposition of the people.

The undersigned renews to Mr. Donelson


the assurance of his high regard and


remains

His most obedient servant


Ebenezer Allen
