About the document
Sen. Cornyn reads sections of a draft letter dated February 16, 1844, from Republic of Texas President Sam Houston to former U.S. President Andrew Jackson emphasizing his support of Texas’ annexation by the United States. (Draft letter: Item 3362, Andrew Jackson Houston collection. Archives and Information Services Division, Texas State Library and Archives Commission). The excerpts read by Senator Cornyn highlight the most compelling points in Houston’s draft letter (the final draft was ultimately sent to Jackson).
