British Correspondence Concerning Texas
By the latest accounts from Austin, it was anticipated that
the Convention would close its labours on the State Constitution
and rise about the 20th. Instant.-I have sometimes thought
that it would have been well had I been enabled to obtain infor-
mation of the proceedings of the Convention from a direct and
authorized source. Some arrangement of this kind might also,
perhaps, be desirable in the event of hostilities on the South
Western frontier. Major Donaldson, Charge d' Affaires from
the United States to Texas, sailed in the U. S. Cutter "Word-
bury," from Galveston for New Orleans, on the 10th. Instant.
H. M. S. "Persian," which left Galveston Roads for Vera
Cruz, on the evening of the 16th. ultimo, arrived at her port
of destination on the 24th. of the same Month, and I have
learned, from Her Majesty's Consul at Vera Cruz, that the De-
spatches transmitted by the "Persian" have been forwarded to
the City of Mexico the day of her arrival.-As the winds were
unfavourable, the quick passage made by the "Persian" appears
to be worthy of remark.
Since the communication which I had the honor to address
to Your Lordship on the 24th ultimo, I have received no official
intelligence from Mexico.
The Earl of Aberdeen, K. T.
