established for the other departments of the Republic.
These bases being understood, and Mr. Robinson having engaged to fulfil his commission in accordance with all, and with the utmost efficacy  and zeal, it is understood that the supreme government will receive with satisfaction the notice of a favourable result of his laudable efforts, or any commission which may be directed to the capital, where I shall go within a few days to resume the reins of government. I authorize for this purpose, and grant to the said Robinson his liberty, and permission to leave the Republic at his pleasure, congratulating myself on the opportunity which permits me to be the means of establishing this agreement, from the precise fulfillment of which, if its results prove favourable, we may hope the complete pacification of Texas, and its reincorporation in the Mexican Republic, of which it is an integral part.
In confirmation of which, I grant this document to said Robinson at my hacienda of Manga de Clavo, on the 18th of February 1843.

Most excellent Sir, - On receipt of your respected communication of the 18th instant, I submitted it to his excellency, the substitute President, and not only is he informed of, but also well satisfied with the prudence and extraordinary integrity with which your excellency has availed yourself of the disposition manifested by the Texian prisoner, Mr. Robinson, to contribute, by his personal influence, to a settlement of the affairs of Texas; and his excellency believes that the propositions drawn up and subscribed by your excellency will protect the national rights and the general principles of our political organization, without the hazard of any concession which the colonists may demand as a guaranty of their future fate.

Having known for some time that, by means of Robinson, one of the Texian prisoners set at liberty, proposals have been addressed to the government of Texas, which I have received, and which might result in the establishment of peace, I advised his excellency the President of this circumstance, and he replied to me that he was disposed to receive Texian commissioners who might be sent to treat on the proposed conditions, acceding, farther, to the propositions which I made him, that a declaration of armistice should be made, in order to carry on the negotiations. In consequence, I informed the changé d'affaires of her majesty in Texas of what had occurred
