Mr. Maseres, in proposing these five articles, provided to the most urgent needs, to what was absolutely necessary; having regard to the little concertation that reigned in the province, he did not see it fit to increase, with a hope of success, the objects of the present requests: but if patriotism and the voice of the common interests were to suddenly bring back all souls to the unity of feeling, (a happy revolution, that today I dare to promise myself for Canada) I boldly move forward the idea that the happiness of the province would require at less the addition of the three following articles:
# The representation of Canada by the appointment of six members, according to the [[System of Government of for Canada|plan sketched]] in my [ ''Lettre à Messieurs les Canadiens''].
# The subtraction from the authority of the governor, of the power to break, or even to suspend the lawyers, the prosecutors, the notaries, and the other legal professionals, on the same clauses stipulated for the judge as a chief.
# The decision of drudgeries left to the judgement of the legislative body, and taken away from the governor, who would then deprived of the means of molesting the poor farmers, by arbitrary and inapropriate injunctions.
