The chamber would be comprised of three classes. The first consisted of 24 members appointed by each of the 24 departments of the Mexican Republic. The second consisted of 21 members voted upon by the departments, six of whom would be farmers, six miners, three industrial entrepreneurs, and six merchants or capitalists. (A net wealth of 40,000 pesos was required to serve in this class, in addition to the baseline annual income requirement of 2,000 pesos.) The third consisted of 21 members nominated by the Chamber of Deputies, the Government and the Court of Justice. The broadside also elaborates the mechanisms for the election and replacement of senators. It is signed in type by Mucio Barquera, 15th President of the Assembly and Acting Governor of the Department of Mexico. This broadside appears to be unrecorded.
