Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

Texas and the Massachusetts Resolutions

THE'substance of this Essay has already been published in the columns
of the Boston Courier, in nine separate newspapers. It is now
slightly enlarged and put in a continuous form, in order that the views
therein taken of two much disputed questions of great national interest
at this time, as well as of the policy to be adopted by the Free States in
respect to them, may be submitted entire to the impartial judgment of
a free people.
