entitled to expect complete reassurance before friendly Negotia-
tiols with Texas are firmly set on foot.
The Undersigned cannot refrain from observing that there is
no want of evidence in the press of the United States that very
eminent and practised Statesmen in that Country are firmly op-
posed to the annexation of Texas to that Union, either at all, or
at least under any other condition than the consent of Mexico,
peacefully obtained. Neither does it seem to be doubtful, judging
from the same sources that these opinions are shared by a large
part of the people of that Confederacy. The Undersigned trusts
that his own sincere desire for the Independence and prosperity
of Texas will be the excuse for alluding to these considerations,
on which, however, he has no intention to dwell
lie will close this note with the renewed declaration of the
desire of Her Majesty's Government to be helpful in the adjust-
ment of this dispute upon terms of honor, justice, and advantage
both to Texas, and to Mexico, and with the expression of the opin-
ion of Her Majesty's Government, that the preservation of their
Independence is the best security of the people of Texas for their
ultimate prosperity, both political and commercial.
The health of the Undersigned is still in a very broken con-
dition (so much so that he writes with difficulty) but he will wait
at New Orleans or in it's immediate neighbourhood as long as he
safely can, and will be happy to receive any Communication which
the Government of Texas may do him the honor to forward to him
through the channel he has already indicated to Mr Jones.
The Honorable Anson Jones.
