Dear Mexico,

You have to take into consideration that Texas won the Revolution. Ya'll fought vey well. But we happened to capture you leader, Santa Anna. With this I believe we have won control over ourselves and Texas. We are not asking for a lot but simply just control oover our own lives.

We understand that ya'll want more power but we have earned this. If we have to we will fight another war and this time execute Santa Anna if that's what we need to do, but since we don't want to do that we should keep it very simple.

Texas will be annexing with the US soon.

If we do not annex with the US then you say that you will recognize us but if we are, then we have the freedom to annex.

Thank you for being good in years past but things went haywire, this will be good for both countries,

Stephan F. Austin
