Banking, suspension of specie payments, and the Panic of 1837 dominate Van Buren's Message to the first Session of the Congress. Later Sessions have material on relations with Mexico, military operations in Florida, removal of the Indians and other Indian policies. In addition to the Texas Question-- including Texas-U.S. boundary discussions and withdrawal of Texas's application for annexation to the U.S.-- Van Buren notes the continuing war with the Seminoles, observing that they are "the only exception to the successful efforts of the Government to remove the Indians to the homes assigned them west of the Mississippi."
