There is correspondence with Colonel William H. Allen, General James Henry Carleton, and Duff Green; agreements between General Gaspar Sánchez Ochoa and John C. Frémont for the construction and operation of a railroad between Guaymas and the United States, for transit across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, and for establishing mints in Matamoros and Mazatlán.
