The facts set forth in documents placed before me relate to. the
islands of Cozumel and Mugeres, or "Mohair," situated on the
coast of Yucatan, and claimed as part of the territory of Mexico,
but they bear more closely and immediately upon Cozumel, than
upon Mugeres.-Subjoined is a rude outline of the form of Coz-
umel, with Sections marked for first, second, and third "choice."
