London is full of fascinating historical sidelights. Here is one; when Texas broke away from Mexico, they established a representative in London, hoping that the British government would recognize the new sovereign country of Texas. The Texas Legate was housed in a small office in a narrow court off St James Street, beside the wine merchants Berry Brothers and Rudd.
