We would like as we are neighbours to establish diplomatic relations with you and secure a treaty. We hope that you are willing to discuss this offer with us in our capital Oklahoma City. President David Johnson is willing to hold a meeting at the Presidential House.

Please get back to us as soon as possible.

Regards

President Gates looked down at the piece of formal parchment below him. He put the invitation in the top drawer of his desk and phoned in his secretary, "Darline can you cancel everything on Friday for me? Looks like I'm going to Oklahoma."
"Sure Mister President, wont be a problem."
David picked up his pen and wrote a reply.

I was hopping I would get this invitation soon because I see a great power, one that will not be pushed around by the whims of others, rising around my country's borders. I personally would be honored to come to Oklahoma City tomorrow, if it won't be a problem. I am not only honored because a neighbor had the integrity to ask the question "Can we be friends?" but because it seems The Gulf Federation is willing to not only work aside us, but openly work with us on important issues in North America and the world. There are many issues I would like to address with your president and I can not wait to sit down and talk with him.

God Bless,

Benjamin Gates

The next day President Gates flew to Amarillo to visit family and then drove down I-40 with his motorcade until reaching the Texas-Oklahoma border.

President Gates and his motorcade as it crossed the border would be escorted down Highway 40 to Oklahoma City. President David Johnson would be waiting at the Presidential House where he would greet him and begin the meeting. The sunny weather pushed the temperatures close to ninety degrees Fahrenheit which meant a good setting for the meeting to take place.

Two Texas Rangers escorted the President up to the Presidential House where they waited outside. Several more Marines also waited in the motorcade in the event of emergency. Ben entered the beautiful home and shook hands with President Johnson upon entry, "You have a beautiful capital Mr. President. You should come visit Austin some time." Upon making it to the meeting room Ben and his secretary, or as he sometimes called him "Amigo", joined the other two parties in the viewing of the historic meeting. Of course he was the only one on the Texas side but that is how the President liked it, him, and "the other guy".

"President Johnson, how would you like to start this meeting today? I'll let you have the first word."

The meeting room would be in President Johnson's study, where two comfortable chairs were set facing each other, beside a small wooden table where a person would record the meeting and draft any treaties or agreements. Behind all that were the two nation's flags which sat behind the chair set for either President.

President Johnson warmly smiled before replying. "Please sit down." After they had both seated, President Johnson continued. "First i would like to welcome you to the Gulf Federation President Gates. I am glad that you are as keen as i am for both our countries to become friends. The region has gone through some times and i feel that both our countries can make a difference."

"Yes Mr. President, I agree. My letter really explained it all. I hope you and I can secure this region and keep it safe from other powers and those whom wish to harm it. I was thinking it would be to our advantage if we created a treaty between one another.. do you have a copy already made or would you prefer to see our proposal first?"

President Gates took off his hat and sat it on his lap as "Amigo" handed him two pieces of parchment. Ben handed President Johnson a copy of the treaty as Ben himself looked it over.

President Johnson scanned the document before nodding. "I really like what has been proposed. I hope that we can forge a solid partnership through this agreement." He handed the document to an aide who attached the formal signatures to the document:

It was then handed back over to President Gates so he could add his signature.

President Gates signed it as well and then signed a second one so they both could have a copy. "Now that this is done, is there anything else you would like to discuss Mr. President?"

"I have one thing. I would like to discuss about my offer to give the Republic of Texas a Military Aid Package worth around Five Hundred Million Gulf Federation Dollars. This will include vehicles and infantry weapons, a list we will give to you at a later date. As an ally we want you to be protected. What do you think of this offer?"

"I thank that is fantastic!" President Gates pulled out a piece of paper and wrote a 13 digit number on it, "This goes to a blue phone in my office set up just for the Gulf Federation, give me a call whenever you want Mr. President. Thank you very much for this ofter, I can't wait to accept it."

President Johnson took the piece of paper and placed it in his jacket pocket. "No problem Mr Gates. We are currently buying new infantry weapons and vehicles, so we want to pass what is being replaced on to you. They are in near perfect condition so there is no need to worry. I will give you a call in a week and we will pass on a list of what you will receive."

Benjamin picked up the phone, "That's fantastic Mr. President. Just to help clarify have the shipments of supplies sent either to Houston, Dallas, or Amarillo if you have shipments coming from that far north. Any of those cities will do for drop off, we have plenty of storage facilities. On behalf of the people of Texas I wanted to thank you again for sharing some of your military technology with us instead of just discarding it - it means a lot. While I have you on the line, do you think it would be okay for us to open up an embassy in Oklahoma City? You can do the same in Austin."
