Date 19 January 1845
Author Stanton, Edwin McMasters (1814-1869)  
Recipient Brinkeroff, Jacob  
Document Type Correspondence
Content Description "I cannot refrain from explaining the satisfaction with which I have read your speech on the Texas question. It would have delighted me to have been able to hear you deliver it, but the effect will tell upon the public mind as "A wood in season.' There is too much inclination among Northern men to submit to the insolent demands of the South, and one of the chief duties that will devolve upon us, as citizens of free and independent states, will be to curb the spirit of domination that has too long been suffered to prevail..." To Congressman Jacob Brinkeroff, Texas annexation opponent.
