Afterward, on the 9th of March, the convention passed a resolution unanimously, ‘That the thanks of the people of Texas are due and are hereby tendered to Maj.-Gen. David E. Twiggs for his patriotism, moral courage, and loyalty to the Constitution of the United States, embracing the rights and liberty of his native South, and that a copy of this resolution on parchment, signed by the president and secretary, be transmitted to General Twiggs.’ The resolution, being properly prepared, was promptly sent to the old hero of many battles.

The commissioners, Messrs. Devine, Maverick and Luckett, continued their operations, corresponding with Cols. H. E. McCulloch and Ford, until the final adjournment of the convention. Very much was done, both of action and correspondence, and that the result may be consistently explained the narration will be postponed for the present so that what was done by each of the officers appointed may be stated.
