which you niaj- make: and satisfied as I am in in own mind of the "
correctness ot my conclusions I call upon you to come iorward
on this important occasion to act promptly and to protect your-
selves. In a country situated like ours so illy provided with
the facilities of communication I fear that more danger is to ho
-Apprehended iroin the want of concert of action; than fiom the
he want of unanimity of opinion; this consideration alone should
give activity and energy to all those who leel an interest in the
iiclfarc of their adopted country. lamwcll aware that there are many
whe wiil oppose ihe opinions that 1 have here expressed; I know
that they possess power and influence and 1 also know that both
will be exercised to controvert these opinions and to produce re-
sults contrary (as I conceive) to the true interests of Texas. But
fellow citizens I warn you against taking ihe ipse tliiil of any
man for established truth and I call upon you who are the bone
and sinew of the. laud to think for oursohes and weigh well tne
all important matter now submitted for yourcoiisidutalioii and de-
cision. If any should oppose you in your opinion call upon them
publicly to assign thtir reasons; let them sati?n and convince nu
ere you follow m their train; for it may sometimes happen that
private interests will conflict with the public weal and that men
may be found who will sacrifice 'he litter at the shrine of the for-
mer. Let none of my fellow citizens he so uncharitable as to at-
tribute the views here advanced '.o a spirit of dictntiun or as hav-
ingemanated from the wild aberitions ofa young aspiring or an am-
bitious man for those ofou who know nicwell know that I am con-
tented with an humble sphere in life. But a nineyeais siege in the

uniform graduation thence to tbe top or surface of

The contract will be given to him or them who

give good and approved security for the faithful
workman-like and acceptable performance of l he-
undertaking accompanied with a provision of for

I form the same to double the sum to be paid for the
that future suddenly overcast depicting A: threatening all the evil
attendant on a state of anarchy and confusion: and being impel-
led by my oath of ollice to warn you of the approach of those
dangers will il is hoped be considered a sufficient reason to
warrant the present appeal. If however fellow citizen upon
a fair investigation of this important question n n.ajority of yoi:
should be in favor of a State Gove nmeiit for Texas on tlie prin-
ciple heretofore attempted you will ceilainh not imd me in op.
position; having no other object in wow tl an that ol promot:'j;!
the general mtcicst by providing and establishing for Texes a
separate Government to which slieisjustlv entitled and without
which her interests cannot he sustained. I have matin c!y Jehbeia-
tednn the gitua'.ion of Texas both as connected vhii tliejSsate.
and dcneral Government and have recommended the former
course in preficrencc to the latter for the reasons alieady t't forth;
having an honest conviction that under all the circ-iiint.iiico it
was the least exceptionable. This however is a matter submitted
to the sovereign people on which to delibratc and dcteunine. I
have just at this moment (when about to bring this communication
to a close) received from a friend in San Felipe information that
our Mexican brethren of Bear was about to take the lead in for-
ming a plan to c fleet the desired object and that an epres fiom
them was hourly expected. This is as it should he and bids iaii
to promote concert. Let the North American citizens of Texas
then throw aside all their local prejudices and private animosities
and freely and honestly enter into concert to promote the object so
dcsirabZe and on which depends the destinies of their addopted
Country. If however feZow citizens after receiving this fair
warning you shoud stiZ remain inactive and unencrgetic and not
be sufiicicntZy aZive to protect your own vitaZ in: crests; and sutler
this fair portion of the State to he swept into the vortex of anarchy
and ruin IshaZl stiZZ have' Zeft one pZcasingand heart feZt consoZa-
