thence the frontier will run towards a point situated at an
equal distance from the villages of Goshik and jMatagoush,
leaving the latter to Turkey. Then, winding round the
villages of IVEatagoush and Yladnja, it will rejoin the line of the
European Commission, 4 kilometres beyond point XXIII of the

Thence it will run in a straight line towards the River Zem,
which it will reach at 100 metres to the west of the bridge,
sub No. XXIY, which will remain to Turkey. It will then
continue towards a point situated at 100 metres to the south o£

the work of placing landmarks be commenced forthwith (in a
fortnight at the latest), firstly, from point XIX of the English
