Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Animating Pursuits of Speculation: Land Traffic in the Annexation of Texas A second contribution has to do with what is usually termed the relation between government and business. The facts investigated in the present study seem to show that this is a false problem since what have been thought to be two dis ciplines are substantially one. Although a Texas executive said that he regarded the execution of the laws for the vested rights of property as much a part of my constitutional responsibility as the supervision of the army, the navy, or the maintenance of public order it was clear from his actions and from his other statements that these four activities were but one complex of execution. As Sam Houston said, With out a government, the government creditors must remain unpaid, and What would a league of land have been worth if I had been prevented from intercepting Santa Anna at San Jacinto P.
