cowardice, because they accepted aid from their brothers
The publication of the present work has been
delayed for various reasons-amongst others, the friends
of Texas, who had perused it, were afraid that we might
again fall into the error, that Mexico would not attempt
to invade us, and in consequence, that no due preparationrsshould
be made for their reception.-This has
now been in some measure provided for by the "bill
organizing the militia;" in accordance with which, our
worthy president has commissioned the proper officers,
and no doubt is entertained that from five to six thousand
men will be at the disposal of their country, exclusive
of the regular army, and of the volunteers and emigrants
This work is therefore given to the public, and
should it afford satisfaction to those who have adopted
this for their country, the translator will be amply
repaid for his labor.
