TEJAS Y LOS ESTADOS-UNIDOS DE AMERICA, EN SUS RELACIONES CON LA REPUBLICA MEXICANA
Mexico: Impreso por Ignacio Cumplido, 1837. 98pp. Original printed tan wrappers. Light soiling, minor toning, and slight edge wear to wrappers. Text a bit toned, but clean. Very good plus. "This is a hasty review of the history of Texas to after San Jacinto, written with considerable venom by Tornel, while he was Secretary of War and Marine. It ends with a plea for a vigorous continuation of the Texan war. Tornel says (p.90) that the loss of Texas would mean the loss of New Mexico and the Californias" - Streeter. As the Mexican Minister Plenipotentiary to the United Sates in 1830, Tornel unsuccessfully tried to halt the colonization of Texas by refusing passports to applicants. At the same time (Tornel confessed in a memoir published in 1833), he was also instructed to attempt to sell Texas to the United States in 1829. Included is a report on contracts regarding Texas colonization from 1825 to 1834. "[Tornel] saw in Mexico, and herein analyzes, the American attempts at Revolution in California; the ulterior motives of the 'colonization' schemes beginning with that of Austin, together with the causes and events of the Texas Revolution" - Eberstadt.
