Points on the Settlement of which the Mexican Govt might

the wish indicated by H. M's Govt.

by the so-called Republic of Texas, that is from the Rio Colo-

Boundaries of the Interior part of the Country.
2d. Mexico by way of Compensation demands an Indemnity
for the Territory so yielded.-The Guarantee of England and
France united, that under no pretext whatever shall the Texans
ever pass the Boundaries marked out. The same Nations shall
also guarantee to Mexico the Californias, New Mexico, and the
other points of the Northern Frontier bordering on the U.
States, according to a Treaty to. be drawn up for that purpose
If the U. States carry into effect the Annexation of Texas to
the N. American Union, England and France will assist Mexico
in the Contest which may be thereby brought on, always under
the supposition that Mexico shall have carried into effect the
recognition mentioned in Article 1.
3d. Until an answer shall be received from England, which
is requested may be sent with the least possible delay, Mexico
will suspend all hostilities against Texas.
4th. The English Cabinet can either give her Minister here,
or send a Commissioner charged with full Powers to treat upon
the above Points, and conclude the Negotiation.
