The Texan Congress passed a resolution of thanks to the author. Mr. Kennedy visited Texas in 1839 for historic material. His favourable report, on his return to England, doubtless prepared the way for English recognition of the Republic. The physical description of Texas in volume 1 is the best published up to that time, and the history proper is in a calm and dignified style, and is not without literary merit. No historian of Texas has more eloquent paragraphs. Out of print and scarce.” – (Raines). [Raines’ Texas Bibliography, pp. 132-3; Howes K92; Sabin 37440].
