Excerpt from Speech of Mr. Dromgoole, of Virginia, on the Annexation of Texas: Delivered in the House of Representatives, January 24, 1845
But, l\/ir. Chairman, whilst the constitutional power to admit Texas into this Union as a new State has been demonstrated, we shall not be able to vindi cate the exercise of that power, unless it is manifest that Texas may rightfully, on her part, apply, or enter. Past occurrences preclude all doubt from my mind of her willingness, her desire to enter this Union, and therefore the argument should be the same as if she was actually making, at this moment, application for admission. Indeed her original ap plication and preference was to become a member of this Union, and not a Territory of the United States. Such, it is reasonable to presume, is still her wish such, surely, ought to be her preference.
