sub-divided into several different Slates,
which divisions and sub divisions (should
the present boundary be adopted) would
be very likely to divest the State of Cali

coast. Your committee are therefore of
the opinion that a boundary should qow
be fixed upon which will entirely precludo
the possibility of such a result in future.
Another important reason, which has
aided very much in producing the conclu
sion to which your committee have arriv
