Excerpt from The Treaty Between the United States and Mexico: The Proceedings of the Senate Thereon, and Message of the President and Documents Communicated Therewith, the Messages, With Correspondence Between the Executive Department, General Scott and Mr. Trist, and Other Papers and Proceedings of the Senate
I deem it to be my duty to state that the recall of Mr. Trist as commissioner of the United States, Of which Congress was informed in my annual message, Was dictated by a belief that his continued presence with the army could be productive of no good, but might do much harm by encouraging the delusive hopes and false impres sions of the Mexicans; and that his recall would satisfy Mexico that the United States had no terms bf peace more favorable to offer. Directions were given that any propositions for peace, which Mexico might make, Should be received and transmitted by the commanding general Of our forces, to the United States.
