KENNEDY TO ABERDEEN2
Strictly Private. British Consulate.
Galveston. Septr 23d. 1843.
I had the honor to transmit to Your Lordship on the 29th of
last Month, by Her Majesty's Sloop of War "Scylla," proceeding
from Galveston to Vera Cruz, the copy of a Map of the Island of
Mugeres, with the Survey of the Coast and Harbour, made by
order of the Texan Commodore for the use of his Government.
Referring to my despatch marked "Private" and dated August
6th, I beg to state that I have seen the Signature of M. de Saligny,
Minister from France to Texas, attached to a document to be
used by the party holding it in the event of M. de Saligny's
death. This document is in acknowledgment of certain claims of
the holder to be recognized by France in case she shall obtain
possession of the island in question.
