could not fail to strengthen the hands of the ministers of their majesties, the Queen and the King of the French, at Mexico.
Confiding in the steadfastness of the people of Texas to the pledges in the fundamental acts of their national existence, several of the great powers have acknowledged the independence of this Republic, and entered into treaties with it. While that confidence subsists, it may be depended upon that the government of her majesty will never relax in its friendly efforts to induce the government of Mexico to adjust on the policy so forcibly pressed on the attention of her majesty's government by  the government of Texas, not adopted without mature deliberation by her majesty's government, and in their judgment equally necessary for the security of Mexico, and the strength and prosperity of Texas.
The undersigned takes this occasion to renew to Mr. Jones the expression of the sentiments of regard and distinguished consideration with which he has the honour to remain his faithful and most obedient servant,
|(Signed), Charles Elliott|
