in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Diplomatic correspondence was created in the course of conducting diplomacy between the Republic of Texas and other nations (the United States of America, England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the Hanse towns (or Hanseatic League), Spain, the Papal States, Mexico, and the rebellious Mexican state of Yucatan). It consists of correspondence between the Republic of Texas' Department of State and diplomatic and consular representatives, both Texan and foreign, dating 1831-1832, 1835-1846, and undated. This correspondence documents the attempts, both successful and unsuccessful, by which Texas sought recognition, aid, and annexation into the Union. The letter books contain copies of both incoming and outgoing correspondence, and document negotiations for loans, and treaties of commerce and recognition, particularly a treaty with Mexico. U.S. diplomatic correspondence discusses Indian affairs, recognition and annexation of Texas by the United States, negotiations for loans, settlement of claims between the two countries, negotiations for duties, extradition, boundaries, and general information on relations with the United States and activities there as reported by the commissioners. English diplomatic correspondence discusses instructions from the Secretary of State to Texas representatives and their reports of activities back to him, claims against Texas for captured British vessels, commercial agreements, recognition of Texas independence, relations with Mexico, protection of British subjects in Texas, slavery and the slave trade, the Texas blockade of Mexican ports, and Texas' annexation to the United States. French diplomatic correspondence discusses instructions of the Department of State to its agents, letters of appointment, attempts to obtain commercial treaties, recognition of Texas independence by the French government, negotiations for a treaty of recognition with Spain, attempts to have France negotiate a treaty of peace and recognition between Texas and Mexico, and establishment of regular mail service between France and Texas. Correspondence relating to the diplomatic relations with Belgium, the Netherlands, Hanse towns, and Spain discusses the recognition of Texas in these countries and Texas' attempts to obtain treaties of amity and commerce. Correspondence relating to the diplomatic relations with Mexico discusses attempts to negotiate a treaty with Mexico, Mexican invasions of Texas, Texas prisoners in Mexico, negotiations with Yucatan for use of the Texas Navy, and the treaty of peace between Yucatan and Mexico; also, a few documents relate to domestic affairs, particularly Indian relations and the depreciation of Texas currency. Correspondence relating to the diplomatic relations with Yucatan includes the treaty by which Texas agreed to furnish naval support to Yucatan's revolution. Correspondents include Republic of Texas Secretaries of State Samuel P. Carson, Stephen F. Austin, James P. Henderson, Robert A. Irion, Barnard Bee, James Webb, David G. Burnet, Abner S.

General correspondence of the Department of State, Republic of Texas by Texas ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Domestic correspondence, home letters, and correspondence relating to domestic affairs were all created and/or collected by the Texas Department of State, later the office of the Secretary of State, during the normal course of business (mostly excluding diplomatic and consular business), and document the non-diplomatic functions of the Department of State of the Republic of Texas, and the Secretary of State's office of the State of Texas. The records date 1822-1859, undated, bulk 1835-1846. Domestic correspondence consists chiefly of letters received by the Executive and State departments (including the Consultation, Provisional, and Ad Interim governments), and also outgoing letters of the Department of State; as well as letters received by Sam Houston as commander-in-chief of the Army. Also included are some commissions, resolutions, and proceedings of citizen's meetings and committees of safety, reports to the President, and addresses of the Convention of 1836 to the people of Texas. Materials prior to the Republic include correspondence, circulars, and reports of Mexican political chiefs and citizens. These records date 1822-1845, bulk 1835-1845. Also included are four letter books containing domestic correspondence, 1836-1842 (which contain, among other things, lists of commissions, estimated expenditures, reports on county boundaries, and lists of county officers). Subjects covered include military defense, Indian relations, land claims, supplies for the Army, the Texas Navy, organization of the government, appointments and commissions, loans and credit of the government, capture and disposition of Santa Anna, claims against the Republic, relations with other nations, elections, printing and translation of laws, reports on county boundaries, and colonization contracts. Correspondents include Robert A. Irion, Stephen F. Austin, Juan N. Seguin, and the presidents of the Republic--David G. Burnet, Sam Houston, Mirabeau B. Lamar, and Anson Jones. Home letters are letters received and sent by the Secretary of State, with some going to the Executive Department, Provisional Governor, and the General Council. Dates covered are 1835-1847. Also included are two letter books labeled <emph render="doublequote">Home Letters, </emph> 1842-1847: one contains letters from the Secretary of State to Republic officials, both national and county; the other contains a list of Perote Castle prisoners, correspondence and colonists lists for several colonization ventures, and a copy of the annexation ordinance adopted July 4, 1845. Most letters pertain to Presidential nominations, appointments, resignations, and supplies for the Army and government offices; also the Texas Navy, postal contracts, claims against the government, printing and distribution of laws, county boundaries, elections, bonds and oaths of office, receipts for payments, and some election returns are covered. Correspondents of note are the presidents of the Republic--David G. Burnet, Sam Houston, Mirabeau B. Lamar, and Anson Jones. Correspondence relating to domestic affairs consists of letters received by the Department of State, the Executive Department or the Provisional Government. Dates covered are 1825-1846, the bulk being 1836-1846. This series of letters was added by State Archives staff to the General correspondence from various sources (including but not necessarily limited to records of the Provisional government, the Convention of 1836, Proclamations of the President, Indian Affairs, and letters received by the President); they were added after the transfer of the other subseries--"Domestic correspondence"and "Home letters"--And therefore contain documents that are not listed on those original inventories. Subjects covered include Indian affairs, relations with Mexico and other nations, organization of the government, contracts, resignations and appointments, loans and credit of the government, colonizations, land claims, claims against the Republic, supplies for the government and the Army, and proclamations of the President. Correspondents include Stephen F. Austin, Santa Anna, William Bryan, and the presidents of the Republic--David G. Burnet, Sam Houston, Mirabeau B. Lamar, and Anson Jones. Finally, a one-volume index to incoming and outgoing correspondence of the President/Governor and the Secretary of State covers the years 1822-1859. Information given in the index includes dates and names of correspondents. Names are arranged first in a roughly alphabetical order, and are then divided by type of correspondence: general (untitled), Army and Navy of Texas, Colonial Affairs, Financial Affairs, and Indian Affairs. Because the Secretary of State?s records are not maintained as they were when the index was created, it cannot really be used to locate specific correspondence. It is nevertheless useful as a guide to what kinds of correspondence were received and sent, providing a context and therefore adding to our knowledge and understanding of the period. Researchers need to consult the several other series of correspondence (domestic correspondence, home letters, and correspondence relating to domestic affairs) to locate specific items written to or by the Secretary of State or the President/Governor. [Note: Researchers need to consult all three series of general correspondence, including domestic correspondence, home letters and correspondence relating to domestic affairs.]
