The Book of Houston, 1928 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Book of Houston, 1928 The question of annexation, Whether Texas should become a part of the United States, or remain a Republic under the protectorate of England or of England and France, was the first outside obstacle to Houston's progress. Credit and money were uncertain, business was checked and progress along all lines was at a standstill. Then with annexation to the United States confidence returned. Texas bonds and notes immediately rose in value and all commercial interests were revived. Houston now entered upon another era of prosperity and growth.
