Excerpt from Texas and the Mexican War: A Chronicle of the Winning of the Southwest

That American diplomat known to his contemporaries as the "eel-like Monroe" gave Manifest Destiny a deep offense which popular memory has let slip. He bartered away, as his enemies said, our claim to the country between the Sabine and the Rio Grande. However shadowy that claim was, there were patriotic Americans in the year 1819 who wanted the country. The shadowiness of the claim was not worth mentioning, they thought. Napoleon sold us something in the Southwest and surely we, with Manifest Destiny on our side, were the best judges of what old Louisiana included.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Texas and the Mexican War: A Chronicle of the Winning of the Southwest The purpose of the Mexican republicans in per mitting the creation of these colonies of foreigners has not been explained any more than have the purposes of the royalists who began the work by encouraging Austin. The Spanish tradition ran counter to such a policy. If circumstantial evi dence counts for anything, the Mexican authorities had some vision of a new regime which Americans do not yet understand. One thing is certain: they had no intention to leave the colonies permanently separate from the rest of the population. Only the Spanish language was to be used in public trans actions. A colonist who married a Mexican was allowed more land than one who did not. All the laws repeated or implied the provision of the origi nal grant to Austin, which laid down as the first and principal requisite for colonists that of being Catholics or agreeing to become so.
