Excerpt from A Paper Read Before the Cincinnati Society of Ex-Army and Navy Officers, January 3d, 1884

Resuming our thread of unlucky conditions; in the third place, the Texans had much less of union sentiment in their biographies, as their State had much more of separateness in their geography, commerce, and history than had the citizens of. The other States of the United States. The latter had never owed, owned, felt, nor imagined any other bonds than those of loyalty to the one grand old ?ag of our fathers. But from their beginnings, under Austin in 1820, and Hous ton in 1836, many of them had voluntarily expatriated themselves, or had been expatriated by stress of our pursuing writs of law, criminal and civil, to take and to profess a foreign citizenship. Indeed, in that critical period, from the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, which be gan the War, to the fire upon Fort Sumter, which was the War itself, the ties of 'legal obligation to the Union and the love for the Union were very feeble forces upon many, if not the most, of the leading men of Texas.
