Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas, threw off the failures of young life to become an essential early Texas leader - the master diplomat that led Texas to annexation as the 28th state in the Union. Ironically, the triumph of annexation ended in personal ruin for Jones, and his final years were filled with bitterness and tragedy.
This fascinating volume contains Jones' private memoirs from 1838 to 1854, his letters and correspondence from 1836 to 1857, and selected essays and speeches, as well as a brief autobiography. As noted in Basic Texas Books 113: "Anson Jones left us the only formal autobiography of a president of the Republic of Texas." An invaluable sourcebook on the Texas Republic and its annexation as well as an excellent addition to any Texana collection.
