I have thro the politeness of Mr Cable, recd your favour of the
24th inst. It gives me pleasure to learn that you do not attribute
to me bad motives for the course I have pursued relative to the late
unfortunate troubles which have been brought upon your province
by the late Fredonians
I can assure you that every person in this place is opposed to
the conduct of these late renegades—and also throought the U. S.
with the exception of a few who would be glad to embark in any
course, however desperate and unprincipled—
You have probably ere this heard the report that H. Clay, sec.
of State has wrote to a Mr. Stockton, of Virginia that the U. S,
were in Treaty for the purchase of the Province of Texas—Mr.
Clay, has denied ever having intimated any thing of that nature—
If convenient I should be glad to obtain the Constitution of the
Province of Texas and Cohuila, as soon as it is published for the
purpose of republishing in English—Also any Mexican papers you
may be able to spare for the purpose of translation I will send
you nothern papers at every convenient opportunity, which I am
in hopes I will be able to do regularly thro the kind aid of Mr
