On March 2, 1836, Texas declared independence from Mexico. David G. Burnet immediately served as interim president of the newly established Republic of Texas. That fall, Sam Houston became the first official President of The Republic of Texas, setting up his government’s capital in Houston. In 1839 the government of King Louis Philippe, constitutional monarch of France, sent a representative to this new nation to determine whether it should be officially recognized as a sovereign nation through treaties with France. The representative was a young man named Jean Pierre Isador Alphonse Dubois de Saligny, a secretary at the French Legation in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States.
