Dear Mexican Government, I'm writing this letter to ask that you give us ( The state of Texas ) recognition that we are Republic. If we don't get recognition we will annex to the US. We have done many things for you. We have tried to make peace with you, we have worked together in many ways like starting the Anglo Colony, working together in the government. At one point we even almost killed Anglo settlers so you guys could have the land wanted. Many of us have followed the Law of April 6th 1830. Yes we have had our ups and downs but again if we don't get recognition we will go annex with the US.
