Letter

Dear Santa Anna,

When we captured you, You signed a form/ document stating you would reconize Texas as a republic. Please do as you signed, and stop trying to gain us back. We might join the US and there is nothing you can do about it. We will be protected by the US Army so good luck wining the war. You need to let us go!!! and STOP TRYING TO REGIAN US.

Sincerely,

Pres. Sam Houston
