British Correspondence Concerning Texas
concurred with me that every proper effort should be made to dis-
pose the President to agree to the Armistice.

H. M. Charge d' Affaires, Mexico.
[Endorsed]. Inclosure NoT 3 in Captain Elliot's despatch No 15
to the Earl of Aberdeen. Galveston June 22d. 1843.
ELLIOT TO ABERDEEN15
No. 17.18 Galveston June 24th 1843.
I have the honor to forward Your Lordship some extracts from
a private letter which I sent to Mr Doyle, with the reply to his
despatch of the 27th Ultimo. The other parts of this letter need
not be intruded upon Your Lordship; They referred to a request
General Thompson had made to Mr. Doyle to see a private commu-
nication I had addressed to Mr. Packenham by the request of Gen-
eral Houston, upon the subject of the Prisoners taken at Mier,
which Communication Mr Doyle had of course declined to shew
to General Thompson.
I have also thought it convenient to forward with these despatches
two Newspapers for Your Lordship's examination, the first (The
"National Vindicator"17 which is the Government organ) contain-
ing the President's Instructions to the Commissioners sent on to
New Orleans for the purpose of enforcing the orders upon Com-
modore Moore to return to this Port; and the Second (the "Civil-
ian"18 by far the best conducted Journal and of most influence in
the Country) containing some observations on the Armistice, de-
serving of attention.
To The Earl of Aberdeen, K. T.
