Applescript: read file

I want to read a text file and put the contents into a field in Filemaker.

 

I have a working applescript (script editor):

       set Mail to "Macintosh HD:Users:Amelie:Documents:Heron:DB:BronDocumenten:Mail:MailBwhr11.txt"

       set MailTekst to read posix fileMail as text

 

But, Filemaker doesn't accept the script (perform applescript). It says: expected a line end but found an identifier and the word file is highlighted (translated from dutch, so there could be some errors in)

 

What could be wrong?

 

Thank in advance
