ORVANNE TO KENNEDY7
[Enclosure] San Antonio de Bexar.
Copy. 30th. August 1844.
It is painful to inform you of a fact as unexpected as extra-
ordinary. The German Association forgetting the Conditions of
the Contract entered into between themselves and me, which bound
us together, has violated the Condition of our joint obligation.
I would not give you this notice, if, in soliciting the favour of
the English Government, I had not taken on myself the respon-
sibility of all the acts of the Association. Now, I am compelled
to decline this same responsibility
"Signed" A. S. Borgeau d' Orvanne.
Be pleased to forward the enclosed letter to His Royal High-
ness Prince Albert.
[Endorsed.] In Mr Consul Kennedy's letter to Mr. Under Sec-
retary Addington, marked "Separate" and dated Septr 24th.

Galveston, September 30th. 1844.
Information has been conveyed, by a private channel, from the
Seat of Government, that the Attorney General (Mr Terrell) of
whom I wrote to Your Lordship on the 9th Instant, is nominated
to succeed Mr Ashbel Smith as Charg6 d' Affaires in England;
that Major Reilly,' who represented this Republic in the United
States, about two year ago, is to resume his former functions at
Washington; and that Mr Ashbel Smith is likely to be elected to,
fill the Office of Secretary of State, under the newly chosen Presi-
dent, Mr Anson Jones.
Mr Terrell's nomination is considered by those who mention it
adverse to Annexation.-He came to Texas from Tennessee, of
7F. 0., Texas, Vol. 10.
