Maintaining that the United States should not relinquish their claim to the free navigation of the Mississippi; the interests of the southern states and of the future western states are to be resigned for an assurance of independence and a subsidy; reasons why this should not be done; a firm stand should be made for American pretensions; any yielding will strengthen Spain in her claims.
