Who will present the resolutions of the Convention of 1833 to the Mexican Government?
I can go! I have been to Mexico City many times and have a good relationship with them.
I have to stay and help the sick.
October 2nd in Mexico City...
I've been waiting for 3 months here and Santa Anna is still not here...I need to write a letter to the Texans.
October 2, 1833 I have waited impatiently for Santa Anna but there have been no changes made. I suggest that the leaders of Texas come together and form a temporary state government. - Stephen F. Austin
I can't believe Santa Anna was able to make some changes but on my way back home I got arrested because the Mexican government thought my letter was treason.
After Austin's release...
Events later showed Austin that Santa Anna was becoming a dictator. Austin's opinion on the Mexican government changed. Austin was no longer for the Mexican government like he had always been.
War is our only recourse. There is no other remedy. We must defend our rights, ourselves, and our country by force of arms.
